Dear Members of Congress,
Today is a day to do your job. Today is a day when the American people will not see the D. or the R. next to your name. What they will see instead is whether or not you came through when we needed you most. For years you have been members of this overly entitled institution that has often looked more like a social club designed to give their members a better life than one designed to provide a service to the country. To those of you who have gotten away with that till now, be very aware of the fact that today is a day you can no longer do so. Today is a day when we are all watching and waiting.
No one, myself included, needs to go over the details of the crisis we are in as I write this letter. That may be the most despicable thing about your collective behavior. You know what is happening in your country. People are getting sick and dying. The economy faces what is likely its biggest challenge in modern history. What all of you need to know is one very simple fact. Listen to this carefully, understand it, and maybe then you will realize why you need to be scared as well. Many of the American people believe, and today’s actions do nothing to dispel this fact, that what scares a member of Congress the most is to lose their job. I guarantee you, that if you as a group fail the American people, then many, if not all of you will ultimately lose your jobs over this catastrophic failure.
Each one of you, those obstructing a bill and those not working like your future depends on passing a bill, will be held accountable by the American people. This is not one of those, “they’ll forget all about this in a few months” moments. Today is the day to get your acts together and do what the American people elected you to do. Today is the day to actually be civil servants. People that care.
This unprecedented crisis can not be blamed on any individual or political entity, but today is the day that all of you realize that all the benefits you have as a result of your position come with the responsibility to take care of your constituents. As of 5:00 PM, EST on Monday, March 23, 2020, the Congress of the United States of America is failing every single one of its constituents like no other time in history. I am certain that we, the American people will hold you all accountable for not helping us with what comes next. Maybe when you think about that you will realize how this will impact you as much as it will impact the people who you are failing today.
DO YOUR JOB.
