No more career politicians

To the Editor:

Our Congress is embarrassing, finger-pointing, name-calling, and trying to shift the blame on the other party.

And that is just in 10 minutes of media coverage on any given day.

A government of the people, for the people, by the people is required. Career politicians more worried about political parties and their own pockets than the American public have no business in office.

The media should have stopped covering the childlike antics of our government and covered the effects the shutdown was having on Americans, businesses and the economy.

Maybe then, and only then, will people rise up and tell Washington to do its job or quit and go home because this is their last term in office.
