WELL now I think that we the voters should share some of the blame. WE voted them in over and over and over!! So we need to check their stand on issues and how they voted on the issues. Especially, the detestable spending for nonsense like to study the sex habits of the African Riangetang!!! Secondly, we need to take the time out to know the people we are voting for....just because he is of “our” preferred party...or because he/she is young, handsome or pretty, uses correct verbiage, popular, acts like a ‘politician’. So the half blame part is NO RAISES until their voting record is cleaned up. And we have a part to play in that.....We stop voting them back in so that they have years to ‘catch on’ and learn how to get rich with corrupt behavior.
