The understanding of how the government works seems to be a mystery to the average citizen.

The Congress, which controls spending and the budget has been inept for years, unable to even pass a budget the past four years. Yet we continue to vote for and re-elect the same ineffective individuals over and over again. How will we ever have changes and solve the massive problems this country has if we continue down the same path?

In any company or organization that has individuals who consistently fail to perform their jobs in an effective and productive manner, they are replaced. This is not the case in the Congress of the United States.

I canít believe people donít care what happens to our country. It must be that the electorate just does not understand the effects of their votes.
