Our taxes are done and we have paid our part to keep our inept government afloat.
Inept? Our Senate and House of Representatives spend all their time squabbling and arguing with each other, claiming and reclaiming their "turf". They never learned how to play together, like most of us learned by the time we got to kindergarten. Therefore, little really gets accomplished. Probably a lot more would get done if we banned all television coverage of any elected official.
But we give them our tax money anyway.
