Today's Congress could teach John Quincy Adams about complete governental degeneration.

Robert Edwards, Sarasato

Let’s bring guts and thunder back into the chamber and get rid of the mice - It's amazing, people who stand up for what they believe to be right are fired from government and their jobs while we sit in our cozy drawing rooms and do nothing. We are as much to blame as our Government when we see dishonor and greed on the floor of the Senate and do nothing. We the people should rise up and take back our country and bring honor and grace once again to the halls or power.

The degeneration continues in our Republic.

E Archer, NYC

Umm, I think its happened already.

J Carlton, Calgary

When we consider the one of the "intrigues" our representatives are involved in is lobbying and kickbacks... That they are paid off by Corporations and central might be fair to say that the Government of the United States is a "Racket". And that it has devolved into something that is no longer tolerable by We The People.

Both houses of the US Congress have degenerated into a bunch of lawyers who care not what is right for this country, but rather how they can buy votes and get reelected. People who would elect the likes of Reid, Pelosi, Barney Frank, Obama, and the like have lost their collective minds.
