I would tend to agree with you about folks not going hungry and all being that we supposedly live in the wealthiest and greatest country in the world, but it seems in reality it's only that for about 1% of us.Everyone in the U.S. should have access to health care, the same as they should not go hungry, and be afforded an education. Republicans are against health care for all, unless you can afford it, they want to cut food stamps and school lunches for the poor in our country, they want to abolish the Department of Education, cut Pell Grants, and hated it when President Obama too the middleman out of student loans. That's what Republicans are for. I say let's help one another!
IMO all federal politicians should be fired for failing miserably to execute their primary functions as our elected officials. They can point fingers all damn day but ALL of them are responsible for the sad state our country is in. What we need is to do away with all special interest groups and lobbyists and reform of the positions by way of term limits, pay tied to the median income of their constituents or home state, no free health care, and NO lifetime benefits. There should be no such thing as a professional/lifetime politician. Also it wouldn't hurt if some of our representatives came from walks of life besides self serving conniving manipulative lawyers.
