Let’s do what’s right for the country

What is going on in Washington is a disgrace, to say the least.

All the finger pointing has to stop. You are all to blame.

Start making decisions on the issues and do what is right for America and its people. All this should never have gotten to this point.

There is too much politicking, owing people favors and making decisions based on your “little corner of America.”

You represent all of us.

Congress needs to have term limits. We, the voters, also have a responsibility not to let politics or favors sway our vote.

We won’t agree on all issues, but let’s vote for people who put America and its people first.

Again, stop the finger pointing, nasty comments and mud slinging.

Change won’t happen overnight, but we must start somewhere.

It will be a complicated process, but it’s time you did the right thing — resign — this includes the president. Let’s get new people.
