Shame On You, 113th Congress!

Shame on you, 113th Congress! Shame on you.

Shame on you, 113th Congress, for wasting time and resources, and for accomplishing so little. Shame on you, 113th Congress, for concluding a legislative session without a timely plan for enacting a federal budget. Shame on you, 113th Congress, for projecting an attitude of not caring that the government may shut down, and for not caring that your inactions once again effect investments nationally and globally.

Shame on you, 113th Congress, for shortsighted closed-mindedness. Shame on you, 113th Congress, for wasting time and resources through stalemates and blame. Shame on you, 113th Congress, for the beyond-regrettable establishment of a new non-standard for our youth, for fledgling representational governments, and for us all. Shame on you, 113th Congress, for proudly choosing not to compromise.

Shame on you, 113th Congress, for demonstrating first-hand to every single student who is fortunate enough to secure a coveted ticket for a seat in the balcony gallery, that as a representational body, you cannot work effectively with people who pose differing views, and you cannot effect change.

I am ashamed of the role-models we have become.
