    It's very hard to keep a lid on our rage when faced with such deliberate misplaced focus by people who are supposed to represent us.  

    As for your letter, I didn't want to put any words in your mouth, but there is a link missing between "matched cash resources to authorized expenses" and "For Congress to vote fifty times..."  It's a change of subject, and what's missing is a short sentence showing how this Congressman's energy and focus is entirely misplaced, allowing you to pivot from the wasted Balanced Budget Amendment to the multiple votes on the ACA.  

    OT: I'd personally love to see a Constitutional Amendment, declaring voting a RIGHT for all adults, and a second one taking private money out of elections.

      unedited rant, written in about 20 or 25 minutes.  Sometimes the words get on the page ahead of the organization part of my brain.  Thanks for the input.

      I'd support those two amendments.

      Republicans are like alligators. All mouth and no ears.
