Target Congress, too

SHARE Target Congress, too

It's open season on the president. What about the Congress?

I was taught that Congress oversaw and controlled the CIA and the FBI as part of the defense of our nation? What about the Senate Intelligence Committee? When they should have been fulfilling their sworn duty to defend the United States, members of Congress were too busy giving free medical care to special groups, raising taxes for pork projects and spending far too much time "on the clock" working to ensure their own re-election.

As terrorists have become emboldened over the past 30 years, we have had five different presidents, yet much of the central power and control of the Congress has remained pretty much the same. Yes, the president has to answer for his actions, but so far, the lifelong members of the Congress have not been called to account.
