Are you looking for a career change? A way to broaden your horizons? Perhaps a house in the burbs (Maryland)would be a really cool addition?
If you are from Michigan, have a desire to meet a lot of new people and serve your country, NOW is the time. A few hard workers with soul are needed in the following districts ... uh well ALL of the following districts except Congressional District #3 which is occupied by Justin Amash:
"The Budget Control Act trades $21 billion in cuts next year for a debt ceiling increase of $2.1 trillion. That's one penny in cuts for each dollar of new debt. The bill does not seriously address the drivers of the federal government's fiscal crisis. It does not improve entitlement programs.
I would personally like to thank Representative Amash for his ability to stand for something bigger than the ability to get in line with what the leader of the house desired.
Again, the Michigan Republican delegation sans one, failed to perform its duty on the most important vote of their lifetimes. They missed an opportunity to stand for a permanence of fiscal prudence.
MICHIGAN DELEGATION VOTE The complete list here
As for those Democrats who voted no, they wanted even more from Boehner. However, this president will take whatever rope he has been given and run with it.
The ONE chance you had to stop him, and you blew it.
