I am beyond annoyed with our supposed representatives in D.C. They need to get to work- for we, the people. This is the letter I sent to both my Senators and my Congressman this morning.
This whole sequestration matter is ridiculous. I am sure there are thousands of ways to cut the budget without affecting services to our veterans and certainly without delaying the opening of the summer season for our National Parks.
How about cuts to the travel budget for Fed offices? This is the 21st century and conferences should be done via Skype or video conferencing. ALL Senators and Representatives should be traveling via commercial carriers, not via Air Force or other government transport.
Why not have every Dept head give up ONE staff member?
How about we get rid of all the unused office space and real estate?
Let's get some regular American citizens in to look things over in each department. I am positive we can find the fat and cut it out.
It has been how many years since a budget was passed? No disrespect intended, but we do pay you to do the work of the people. Let's get it done!
I have about had it with these people! Special interests. Living high on the hog. Parties, conferences, their own special travel and health insurance. What ever happened to Congress shall make no law that does not apply equally to them?
Enough is enough. There are hundreds of buildings the Federal Government owns that are not used, not rented, just sitting there. Every Congress person has an office budget of over a million dollars! Why are they traveling on Air Force planes? Why are we giving money and military equipment to Egypt, Pakistan, Afghanistan etc etc etc ad nauseum?
I am absolutely 100% positive there is money to be saved - but lets have some common sense.
And how about they pass a budget? Do the work for which we pay them.
