We elect people to the House of Representatives believing they will work hard to represent us. Surprise! Members of the House of Representatives, who are paid $174,000 a year, just revealed their July to December work schedule. They have decided to work a total of 43 days from July to December. July they worked 16 days; in August they won’t work at all; September they will work 10, October the first two days; seven days in November and eight in December.

Let’s be optimistic and assume they will use those 43 days to really get some work done for the American people. Seems that won’t be happening either, as they have absolutely no policy proposals on their agenda. So what will they do with their 43 days? Their agenda says they are going to work on suing the President of the United States for not doing his job.

The House of Representatives richly deserve their “do-nothing, party of no” title.  Right now we have the chance to vote them out of office and replace them with working, caring representatives of the people. Get to know who will really represent you, then vote.
