The U.S. Congress has once again proven itself incompetent in not passing the Zadroga 9/11 Health Care Compensation Act. Democrats are guilty of not developing a winning strategy, despite their majority, and Republicans are guilty of once again ignoring the ordinary people of the country in place of special and limited interests that have only self serving goals. If we get the Congress we deserve, then we as a people don’t deserve much these days. A little patriotism from Congress would be nice. Maybe it’s time to elect the street sweepers and waiters and laborers of the nation to Congress. As Alexis de Tocqueville said 150 years ago, they might be rough, but they know enough. And Congressional Term Limits is a good place to start.
