O’Connell On Capitol Hill Sleepovers At Politico’s Arena

Ford O’Connell’s response to ‘Time to nix Capitol Hill sleepovers?’ At Politico’s “The Arena”

America is currently faced with a budget deficit that would scare even the Greeks. So kudos to the members who have decided to put the livelihoods of their constituents ahead of their own personal comfort.

As far as I am concerned,we shouldn’t let members of Congress go home until they pass a realistic federal budget. Perhaps we could borrow an idea from the Vatican and erect a chain link fence around the Capitol and not let them out until we see the puff of white smoke from a balanced budget; if that doesn’t work, the next step would be to turn off the air conditioning and see if that helps our representatives generate less hot air and more action. After all, the future of America is at stake.
