Letter: Congress Must Do Its Job!

Now that the presidential election is over, Republicans in Congress are given a chance to do what is right for America — work together across the aisle to solve fiscal and other problems that face us all.

Instead, out of the gate, major Republicans like Sen. Marco Rubio speak out about what the Republican Party needs to do to win the next elections! They talk about how they lost because of demographics… They need to address what people voted for and why they voted the way they did to re-elect President Obama.

What Republicans don’t talk about much is what is needed to turn the economy around, keep the country from going over the so-called “fiscal cliff.”

Instead they still want to hold to their same ideologies regarding taxes, etc… They also don’t talk much about the millions spent by the appropriately named “doughboys” in their attempt to buy the elections or needed campaign finance reform.

Now, Republicans in Congress, especially the House, need to get busy and do the job that they were elected to do — serve all Americans and earn their considerable pay.

  1. Working together involves both parties, not just one party. Democrats do not have all the correct answers to the problems our country faces.

    The Democrat dominated Senate under Harry Reid voted down President Obama’s budget, failed to put forth their own budget and failed to bring to the table those bills passed by a bipartisan Congress and waiting action by Reid.

    There must be ‘give and take’ from both parties.
