Lazy Congress 

Editor,

I am a huge fan of Kevin Burkhalter’s comic strip, Still Life. I’ve been reading Connect Savannah for 5 years now and I am thrilled to see a comic that explores what its like to be an artist. In a creative town, like Savannah, it’s nice to finally see our niche highlighted.

Still a Fan for Life

Lazy Congress

Editor:

The members of the U.S. House of Representatives have been working in Washington on 41 of the first 127 days of this year.

They are planning to be in session half of the remaining weeks.

How long would you keep your job if you worked like that?

Even when they show up they fail to address the biggest problems facing the country.

It would take a 50 percent tax increase in order to balance the so called budget yet they are avoiding the problem while the debt grows by $1200 billion per year.

The real problem is you and I let them get away with it.  They work for us and we pay them $174,000 per year to do it. 
Make a commitment to write or call your representative once a week and express your views.

See how they respond and let that be your guide to voting this November.

  • Take a closer look at agencies and their staff salaries

    It would help to get a proper perspective if the cuts were to be presented as a percentage of the agency’s total budget. It would also be fair to note what the city’s contribution will be after the proposed cuts.

    'Unlike the article implied, the HSMC is not a division, department or entity of the Metropolitan Planning Commission (MPC). The HSMC holds meetings in the MPC’s conference room and is staffed by MPC staff but it is a Commission created by, appointed by and reports to City Council.'
