In an age of unprecedented strife millions have continually suffered from decades of neglect by Congress. Their blatant disregard for the publics welfare has kept the American public caught in a vortex of suspended anticipation only to find like on Christmas morning coal in their stocking. The voice of the people has never really been in consideration. For years Congress and Presidents have had many opportunities to right this ship of state. So far their attempts have only made this ship of state on the verge of capsizing.
Now, as massive income inequality soars has made millions of Americas become aware to the reality that Congress has yet to to act on their behalf. This has come about by the efficiency of Congress to usher in policies over the years that actually enhances the profitability for the continued rise of income inequality. When ever Congress has acted has always been fruitful not for the American public but has perpetuated a growing apathy toward the rest of the population. This apathy fueled by the level of corruption hat has been allowed to seep into the halls of government has unilaterally kept millions trapped with little or no resources to improve their quality of life.
As it stands today both political parties have only entrenched themselves as guardians of the power elite. After decades of neglect to the nations infrastructure and the general public has left the United States literally falling apart. Now, like everything else that Congress has attempted to do has come up with a massive spending bill that attempts to make things right for the American public. Unfortunately the partisan politics that has plagued government for decades has reduced the efficiency of Congress to devise a plan of direction that would elevate this nations ability to secure the nations health and vitality now and for the future.
It was Clint Eastwood that recently stated that “If Congress really gave a “Rats Ass” about the American public they all would resign” A prime example is their gross neglect in understanding the dangers of Global Warming. Just since the Paris Accord co2 emissions have increased to their highest level. Even with the influx of electric cars now surging fossil fuels are the prime source of power in recharging their batteries. Cruise ships, airplanes, the trucking industry, and trains for the most part all use fossil fuels as their prime source of power.
Ever since the mid 1970’s the scientific community has warned about what rising co2 emissions are doing to our planet. And, yet the political will to address this crisis just like this recent Pandemic was met with inefficiency at the highest level. Whenever there has been an attempt to address say global warming and the recent Pandemic have all been silenced by the vast sums of money that always finds it’s way into the coffers of many elected officials and candidates.
It is every time that Congress attempts to pass legislation they always come up too little and much too late to really make a difference. What should have been happening years ago didn’t happen. And, what is happening today with this latest legislation is just another tantalizing effort to entice the American public into believing that Congress is acting on their behalf.
The public has been beguiled by the vast amount of money that is involved not only in politics but by the way our society is mesmerized by the allure of what wealth can do. This occurs when so many are facing dire financial and economic hardships and the hope that we will be rescued by responsible government. We can conclude that when the public’s will is in many instances ignored, deemed not necessary or completely dismissed the public just may have been swindled out of so many opportunities to improve their quality of life.
Today, the United States is not governed by the will of the people but what money can buy. All one has to do is look at the way the Pharmaceutical industry has and is influencing the halls of Congress.. As a result of their influence too many members of Congress have gained financially while the rest of the population have suffered the highest price increase for medicines in history. The sad reality is that it has always been the poor that continue to suffer the most. But when we have the best Congress that money can buy can we expect anything less?
