The disrespect, the contempt, the arrogance, the sense of entitlement and elitism by the preponderant majority of those in the U.S. Congress and Senate has become unquestionable. The real question is: Will WE THE PEOPLE exercise our right to "vote the bums out!" Something else DOES need to be said; a message the Congress WILL hear since they couldn't hear the message of the Town halls, the two rallies in Washington, D.C., the wishes of the people to vote down the healthcare legislation is this: WE THE PEOPLE are coming after your jobs...McCain, you are NOT safe just because you reached the pinnacle of your career by running for President. The same sentiment goes to all the rest in Congress who have demonstrated a level of arrogance and disrespect to the people, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, National Sovereignty, and the financial integrity of this country. Shame on all of you.

The Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate talk as if President Reagan were their guiding light, but they act like Jimmy Carter is the example of leadership they choose to employ. And they have the arrogant audacity to come to us, their constituents, and think we can't discern the difference.
Well...WE THE PEOPLE are slow to anger, we are forgiving, we are a trusting lot who want to believe the best in our leaders, but the preponderant majority of you have betrayed our trust, and you have proven you are more quick to compromise principles than to stand and not bend the values which President Reagan spoke, and you all claim to like so much.
This August 2009 AP photo by Jessica Hill of the Connecticut legislature speaks volumes, and so will WE THE PEOPLE come the next election.
