Senators Sessions, Vitter & Grassley go out in the farms to see for yourselves the real situation. You're just whiling precious time on your couches in your beautiful offices courtesy of the American people waiting for media interviews for a pointless views on current issues. Do your job sirs, it's a shame you're our senators.
