They are just marking time so that they can retire with their fat pensions, fat health care, their fat, personal political war-chests and live happily ever after in the land they betrayed.
I have often said that you could stuff all 535 of them in a blender, pour them out, and you wouldn't fine one gonad to make one man.
Ever notice how these people go to Washington as paupers and retire as multimillionaires? How do they do that on such a low income?
To them, those in Washington, It's not about saving the tax slaves. To the elite, we're nothing but their own personal beasts of burden. It's about them, their power, and their luxuries.
The democrats don't bother hiding it. That's why they never get called on it. They flaunt their luxuries. The republicans are always getting into trouble, because they have to try to hide their lust for power and money, and like today the truth occasionally sneaks out.
Republicans will cave. It's the only way they can scam their millions to retire on.
So, keep working suckers. The politicians from both parties want more of your money. They've got their private islands to pay for.
