Can anyone explain why we continue to pay members of Congress when they are refuse to perform their basic function? With any other job, one would be immediately fired!
President Barack Obama has the constitutional duty to present a U.S. Supreme Court nominee to fulfill the vacant seat on the court. Yet even before the death of Justice Antonin Scalia was publicly announced, members of Congress, announced their intent to deny this African-American president his constitutional right to nominate a replacement ("GOP's no-hire court," Feb. 15).
At some point, Republicans have to realize they lost twice and Mr. Obama was elected by the people! Term limits should be immediately voted in and, when members act in the manner currently portrayed, they should not only lose their pay but be fired.
