The current Congress has been an abject failure to the American people. It has the worst record of productivity in the history of that institution.
The House of Representatives has accomplished nothing except to vote more than 60 times to repeal the Affordable Care Act. It has impeded the economic recovery by its irresponsible inactivity and failed to fund long-term infrastructure needs.
When an institution is so derelict in its duties, the rational response is simply to throw the bums out. Incredibly, the Herald has endorsed all the local incumbents in the House, as if to say they didn’t do their job last time but let’s keep them anyway. I voted against the incumbent in my district and urge voters to send a message and do the same.
