Week Forty-Eight: And now, for something a little different.

An Open Letter to the Speaker of the House, Senate Minority Leader and Senate Majority Leader:

Gentlemen, these past four years I have been disappointed in your service with our country. You have failed those you represent, and those represented by Congress and its members. Specifically, your failure to pass a budget disappoints your people.

A budget has not been passed since April 29, 2009. Each year, the new fiscal year starts on October 1. Long before this, the President of the United States submits a budget for approval, typically by the first or second week of February. That gives you seven and a half months to approve a budget.

Gentlemen, it is you who are meant to guide your fellow members of Congress. You have not guided them in this matter. I sincerely hope that this year is the year you do so, before further damage to our country is done.

Those who elect you expect a compromise; they do not expect you to always have your way. I understand you work with a large number of men and women, however your inability to manage to compromise sirs, is a sign of that you are unable to handle this job.

In this you have failed, and I am sorry.

I call on you to do your constitutional and legal duties. Further failure to do so is a failure of your job. If you believe you cannot manage this task, than I call for your resignation. We do not need those incapable of their duty in our government. Gentlemen, either prove yourselves capable, or resign.

A Faithful Citizen,
Marie Manning
