Once again our representatives do nothing for us. But, It is our fault we keep putting them in office year after year.

yep. voters get blindsided by the rhetoric and don't remember it's government by, of and for the people and they're not electing those principles.

Why do foreign countries get more aid/pork than Ohio or any other state? Israel is number one with more than $3 billion per year decade after decade which works out to $500 per capita plus or minus compared to the $39.36 per capita for Ohio this year. It appears our Senators may have more passion for Israel than our rural counties. I bet there have been more trips to Israel and other countries than some of our rural towns in economic poverty.

That's okay, Ohioans are making up for it by being like the #3 consumers of the cash for clunkers program. We're bringing our own pork home!
