I was shocked to learn that there are 88 committees/subcomittees in the Congress involved with these various agencies that are to be combined. Tells me there is going to be a large turf battle as all these committee chairman try to hold on to their turf. Would think we could slash some staffers in Congress with this consolidation but then I am probably dreaming.
You are so right, allowing themselves to be blackmailed for votes is no way to run a Country. If they are subject to blackmail for political purposes that influence their votes they either need to come clean or get out of Congress!
But then again... look at the responses this thread got..(Even with this reply to you, we will be lucky to reach 25!!) just goes to show the complacency that is the cancer in our society.
