Yes, our 21-year incumbent representative in Congress, John Shimkus, did vote for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would have allowed the federal government to raid the Social Security trust fund in order to balance the budget.
It’s about time we throw them out and get back to work.
Failure is not an option because our communities are on the line.
The lack of a diplomatic presence in the region is harming our efforts considerably.
Regardless of the results of the missile strikes, without a diplomatic strategy there is no chance for success.
From the hollowing out of the State Department to the continued struggles at the VA, when are the People going to hold Congress accountable?
