Correction: Rep. Bost is part of the Illinois House of Representatives – same circus, different venue
Know that even people in Congress are getting pretty fed up of the bull***t that is happening in politics. I stumbled on this fiery video from Reddit showing Rep. Mike Bost of Illinois venting after having only 15 minutes to read and vote on a 200-page bill. Needless to say, we honestly need to show these representatives to the voters in this country, so that they know that not all politicians act the same way as other ideologically-motivated career politicians do.
This isn’t about party politics. This is simply about ineffective politics that needs to change. Agendas need to give away to actual plans that fix our mess of a country. And frankly, if you have to write a 200 page document for pension reform, then your pension program has a lot more problems than this irresponsible method of voting.
Here’s a thought: We have so many overpaid lawyers who could be used for real public good by reviewing all of the laws and case studies to develop viable plans that streamline laws to the most simplest form possible. Start building a national process that all states can follow to personalize the programs to the states actual needs. Enforce ethical guidelines for all players to uphold. Use polling to find out the needs of the people. Have all sectors actually work together to innovate fair practices that will promise a future for all. And that’s just for starters.
Looks like even our legislators are fed up of how our government runs. I totally agree!
