Good life disappearing due to inept politicians

info@islandpacket.comOctober 23, 2013 

I was under the impression that America was a land where people could prosper and enjoy the good life.

When we have officials threatening to take away benefits from seniors and the disabled and take away death benefits from military families, how is this the good life?

Why doesn't someone threaten to remove officials' benefits and allow them to live with the fear of losing everything? An agreement to reopen the federal government was reached, but in 90 days, they get to play with our citizens' emotions once again.

Maybe the time has come to get rid of all of them -- all sides -- and let real people sit down and work things out for the welfare of our citizens and our country.
