I remember people referring to GM as Government Motors after the bailout. I miss that transparency. Bailouts suck period. When they are hidden in secrecy they are an abomination.

What a shocker, the people in DC who don't have term limits are getting rich off the taxpayer...and somehow Trump is the problem.

Vote all members of Congress out!

This reeks of the crap they pull while everyone is either busy rioting, protesting, celebrating the 4th, or brow beating their friends and family about waring masks on Facebook.

The speaker of the house, house majority leader, house minority leader, senate majority leader and senate minority leader have a combined 161 years in Congress....you got that, five people have 161 years in Congress and they are in charge. So yes, if there's corruption in DC, it's Congress' fault...and more specifically the DNC's and GOP's fault. Trump may be corrupt, but he hasn't been in DC long enough to cause the rampant corruption prevalent in our federal government and he'll be gone either this year or in 2024. Meanwhile, Pelosi, McConnell, Schumer, McCarthy and Hoyer will be in Congress pretty much as long as they want.

I get it but trump vowed to drain the swamp out of his own mouth. It seems like the same ole bath tub to me. So either he lied or he has no clue how to do it.

Probably a little of both, doesn't change the fact that the biggest problem in DC is Congress, not whoever the president happens to be.

So, are you planning on voting out incumbents or are you going to vote party line?
