What is wrong with the PA State Legislature?

It seems increasingly clear that their agenda is this and only this – to prove that Republicans hate Democrats and Democrats hate Republicans.

What a wonderful lesson to teach my children about politics these days. When will our senators, congressmen/women, and governor choose to act like adults and take into account the people who elected them? The people they have left holding the bag?

When will they acknowledge the damage they are doing to the schools that have closed (or are about to) because they are running out of funding? Or acknowledge the further financial burdens placed upon us, the taxpayers, who will have to repay the loans taken out by our school districts just to keep the doors open for our children?

As long as they still get their paychecks, they clearly don’t care about the rest of us. When will they teach our children about compromise? About non-partisan politics? About how to get along with your co-workers?

When on earth will we, the voters, finally say enough is enough?
