Rolling Stone has a new article The Worst Congress Ever in their latest edition. "How our national legislature has become a stable of thieves and perverts -- in five easy steps". It basically shows that politics has evolved under the likes of John Klines and the other congress members to an all time corrupted low.
The cliff note version:
Step One- Rule by Cabal. Remember when Sensenbrenner just shut off the power and walked out when the Democrats wanted to hold a hearing on the PATRIOT Act?
Step Two- Work as little as possible and screw up what little you do. Congress worked a record breaking low: 92 days in the second session and they sucked at it.
Step Three- Let the president do whatever he wants. No oversight. When there is a Democratic president, no issue is to small to investigate. When there is a Republican president. Nothing is debated.
Step Four- Spend, spend, spend. Since there is no oversight happening, what else is there to do? Spend money.
Step Five- Line your own pockets. And feel no remorse for it when you get caught. Blame those who busted you for ruining your life.
The corruption needs to stop and America needs new leadership with values. While you're at Rolling Stone, don't miss the feature: The 10 Worst Congressmen. While Rep. John Kline missed out on being one of the top ten worst, he certainly is the worst in Minnesota!
