Senators and Reps Should be Held Accountable

This is not going to be another finger-pointing post about the Democrats or Republicans and which one is at fault. Nor will this be a criticism of the President.  Let’s talk about the reality of employees who don’t get the job done.

When most of us go to work, we’re expected to do a certain job. When we don’t do that job to the expectations of the employer, we get some kind of consequence. This could be in the form of being reprimanded to being fired.

Our House and Senate employees need to take notice and be accountable for their actions. Why should they be allowed to sit on their hands and get paid for it? Would an employer stand for squabbling between employees that prevented the work from being completed?

There needs to be a law written(although there never will be)that anyone in the House or Senate that will not cooperate (within reason) with each other will either be fined or fired.

People wonder how our economy has gotten to the point it is. By allowing employees to run amok without being accountable for their work and paying them for the rest of their lives for being a previously bad employee, we’ve essentially gotten ourselves in the red.

Congressional members should not get any special treatment. They need to do the job or face the consequences – like every other person working in the United States of America.

For now, regular citizens can only retaliate by not re-electing the inefficient members who were suppose to be representing The People. Remember their names and make a difference at the voting booths.


About thewritegirlforthejob

During college, I began my writing career as a reporter for a newspaper. After graduating with honors in 2004, I continued my journalism and public relations education at Barry University and Empire State College(graduating with a BA). As a freelance writer, I have over 100+ published works and have had the honor of authoring the commissioned book, History Restored. Since starting my writing career, I've edited more books for authors rather than complete my own - since work comes first before I have the pleasure to write. I've been very lucky to be given the gift of having a very supportive family that has allowed me to share my passion of creating and writing and can already see my youngest wanting a page of her own soon.
