LETTER: Clean House (and Senate)

Commentary • Mar 25, 2010 at 3:17 AM

I think American's are beginning to see just how broken our government has become. We tried term limits, failed! We tried voting them out, failed! It's not whether we elect Democrat or Republican, it's the climate of government in Washington D.C..

Our federal representatives are bought and sold by special interest groups and lobbyists once they open their doors on Capitol Hill. I propose a change in Ohio state law, a process to recall federal elected officials. The turning of U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich is a demonstration of the broken state of affairs in our nation's capitol.

I'm ready to sign the petitions. The fox is in charge of the hen house. You think Congress cares about any mess they create or leave behind in D.C.? Many have a convenient million dollar pension at the expense of the taxpayers. Fire them all, terminate the congressional pensions, and institute term limits for Congress.
