Concerns with Conaway, matters being ignored in Washington

Don Yoes of May, Texas

This is in concern of what Congressman Mike Conaway is not doing in relation to what he should be doing. He has apparently been busy on “The Farm Bill.” I think they are finished with that (hopefully) and maybe I will read or see something that might be applicable to you and me.

I've asked the Congressman when the Congress was going to effectively take some action of a positive nature that would be beneficial to a U.S. citizen in the ongoing scheme of things where the illegal invasion is going on. He told me the statistics indicate there had been improvement. I told him that was the same garbage that Janet Napolitano (head of Homeland Security) had told the citizens when she visited the southern border and said “the southern border is safer now than it's been in years.”

Mr. Conaway told me that it sounded like I was calling him a liar. I said I stood by what I said, but I should have told him, “Congressman, you hit the nail on the head.”

Mike Conaway is the typical D.C. bureaucrat than can vote on a matter occasionally and look forward to big money in retirement.

What I want to see in my representative in Congress is someone who has some spine and character. Conaway and 500 or so other representatives (and most Senators) never say anything that might "rile or question" the President's Executive Powers. You know... the guy in the oval office who is running and ruining our country by executive fiat.

Eddie Childs, a few years ago, just thought he was “mad as Hell.” I am mad about lots of things that apparently our Congress doesn't seem concerned about. One thing I am concerned about right now is that I cannot buy fuel for my internal combustion motors that, by all good information, is destroying them. Hence, some things should be said concerning the big time Ethanol industry and corn growers. Makes one wonder if some of our “good congressman” might have some farming interest in corn-growing country... or possibly the Ethanol industry.

A few other matters that need to be addressed are: The border, Benghazi, the IRS intimidation of Conservatives, the over-reach of the EPA, the fragile electric power grid, the failing economy, the destruction of the best healthcare system in the world by Obamacare, etc., etc.

How can a Congressman/woman with any sanity convince you and I that they can pass bills without knowing what they may be passing? My list could go on almost forever about what questions or comments Mike Conaway and other Congress members should be commenting on in respect to the Executive Branch.

I can assure these legislators that, not only I, but lots of other citizens are “mad as Hell” about the Administrative Branch running the United States off the rim and most citizens are not even saying “Whoa!”
