Letter to the editor: Vote out our corrupt Congress

Why does nothing get done in Congress? Why is the immigration crisis not being addressed?

Let’s start with the Democratic-controlled House. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her leadership team see the border crisis as a source for Democratic voters. No one will admit this, but it is the best way for the Dems to regain power in Washington.

The Democratic strategy of resist and investigate the president is a sad ruse. Sen. Chuck Schumer and his team are in lock-step with Pelosi. The Republicans are no better. Trump has upset their establishment apple cart. The fact is, Sen. Mitch McConnell, the RINOs, the never-Trumpers, the Chamber of Commerce Republicans, etc. have a strong Republican president they do not support.

The best solution for both the Senate and House is term limits. Sadly, the corrupt Republicans and Democrats will never pass term limits. We the people must pass term limits. How? My answer is simple. Your vote counts. When you go to vote, never, never vote for an incumbent. Congress thinks you are too stupid to do this, but you are not. Only you can fix this corrupt Congress. Vote.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
