Thaddeus McCotter has a message for both republicans and democrats – don’t attend Obama’s summit; it’s an infomercial. Rep. McCotter has quite a few thoughts on the summit’s ‘unfortunate misuse of congressional time and energy’. He has a great explanation for Americans’ cynicism surrounding Congress, and quotes the Rasmussen Poll which states that only 21% of Americans believe that they are being governed with their consent.
They think that politicians and government is a special interest, and what they are very afraid of is that more politicking, more posturing, more preening, as opposed to actually admitting that either you can agree to something, if not, take it to an election, and get down to the issue of the economy or something where you can agree.
Mr. McCotter may not be watching, but unfortunately we will…
This guy seems like a “keeper”. He understands what the folks outside the beltway want – healthcare reform one small item at a time.
