Today's L.A. Times letter to the editor, because our voices matter:
Mitt and Ann Romney say that they don't want to release any more of their tax returns because it would open them up to more attacks. What do they think is happening to them now?
I don't get the lack of work ethic. Yes, Congress members are busy, busy, busy doing Very Important things that take a lot of effort.
What's more important than "doing the people's work"?
Oh yeah. Fundraising.
I guess that flurry of shouting out "aye" or "nay" wore them out. It must be really "wearing on the body":
Am I being too harsh? Good. With all the talk of "never enough time" and "the clock running out", I guess I'm out of patience when it comes to whining about being too pooped to tend to an enormous backlog of House bills that have been sitting there doing absolutely nothing.
Even though it will be a different, more GOP oriented Congress come January, fighting even harder for what we want will require more time, not less.
