Federal legislators failing to do their job

I like most of the people I know am extremely mad at all of the federal legislators for failing to do their primary job — establish a new budget by October of each year. They have not prepared, presented, and voted on an approved budget for many, many years. If your job required the preparation and passing of a budget and you did not do so, you would be fired.

But, if you do a web search to see how to recall any federal legislator for dereliction of duty you will find that there is no way to recall them once they have been elected. Their current antics, bickering, party politics, name calling, and lack of respect for America and the voters is totally unacceptable.

We must change all of our federal legislators and elect new ones. Once we get new legislators elected, then we must insure that they pass a federal law allowing the voters to remove them from office for failure to perform their constitutional duties. But, I fear that the “sheep” will forget this fiasco by the next election and we will continue to have a broken legislative branch.
