Why are the members of Congress always trying to reduce our benefits that we have earned over many years of hard labor? We paid for these benefits. Congress always seems to give itself more benefits and higher pay while trying to give benefits to their rich owners and cut our benefits. People like the Koch Brothers seem to be the owner of the most politicians. They always get richer while we get poor. They are eliminating laws that protect workers, and women's rights. They are now trying to eliminate the 8 hour work day. They are doing away with over 100 years of labor law protections. Next they will eliminate child labor laws, due to the fact that they want cheap labor. Money seems to talk for them. Look back in history and see how many laws that protect the workers have been eliminated. Maybe we need to eliminate some of these Koch Brother owned poiiticians at the next election. We, the people, should have the right of protection, under the law, for our labor, our families, and the right to elect HONEST POLITICANS. We the people have certain rights under our Constitutuion that should never be removed by dishonest owned politicians. Speak up and be heard. Elections are coming soon. We the people should vote for some Honest Politicians and eliminate our owned ones. It is unfair that certain people, who own politicains, can demand that the people be damned and their companies be given special laws so they can get richer.
