Letter: Washington insiders cause much of nation’s problems

Wow. Whether you like President Trump or hate him, unless you’re a hopeless partisan for the right or the left, or simply are oblivious to what’s been going on these past two years, you have to admit that we now have learned what a nasty swamp/ocean our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. truly is.

Our politicians, lobbyists, bureaucrats, and certain government agencies are not exactly bursting with integrity, are they?

Public sector federal government employees playing politics?

Most political junkies have probably been a bit skeptical about this all along but now it has been revealed to the masses.

We the citizens are being played for fools.

They all go to the same cocktail parties down there and many leave their offices and positions as millionaires.

Our Founding Fathers came to Washington, did their work, and returned home to their

jobs.

Maybe term limits would help with a periodically changing set of players so no one gets too comfortable and no one has to constantly waste time raising money for re-election.

More enlightened voters would help although often times there’s not much of a choice anyway. Many would say the last presidential election would be an example of this. But at least most of now should be “woke” to what’s really going on in D.C. Let’s hope so.
