To whom in the House of Representatives this may concern:

Quit wasting your time debating a piece of legislation that has no power whatsoever. If it passes, the President will ignore it; if it fails, the President will still do what he and his cabinet want and feel is necessary overseas. I just want you to stop wasting my hard-earned money debating a whole lot of nothing. I’d personally prefer if it passes as proposed:

  • Congress and the American people will continue to support and protect the members of the United States Armed Forces who are serving or who have served bravely and honorably in Iraq
  • Congress disapproves of the decision of President George W. Bush announced on January 10, 2007, to deploy more than 20,000 additional United States combat troops to Iraq

The resolution (it’s not even a bill!) is just enough to get the message across, but has no hooks on the finances of supporting the troops as my Republicans would like to make the public think. In fact, nowhere does it state that we will decrease spending on our troops! The only thing it really says is that the American people want the President to be more accountable for the actions overseas and to know that the American people dislike the continuation of the war.

So much for all of the bi-partisan talk of late that has been spouted from both sides; grow up, grow a pair, and do the right thing for this country. I’m tired of all this bickering; you have a job to do. If I were your boss, you’d have been fired long ago and replaced with someone who actually does work and doesn’t complain about being asked to work more than three days a week (yes, that complaint actually came up from a Congressman a number of weeks back!)

You have a job to do…
