To The Editor:

Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Irene, Hurricane Sandy and massive snowstorms in the New England states: now, what if our EMTs, police units, firemen and National Guard personnel all decided that it was time for a recess of a week so they could rest.

Stupid, yes, yet during a national dilemma, our Congress has decided to just this. Where is the sense in this? This country needs these politicians to do their jobs and get together to end this schism that is stopping all meaningful, sensible laws to be enacted. Maybe it is time to fire them all and start over.

For the money they receive to represent us, it seems that in some way, we could penalize them for their lack of cooperation and let them know just how angry we are.

I also wonder who is paying for the saturation ads from Governor Cuomo. These pop up every 30 minutes or so and I assume they are hitting every TV station in New York. Just save this money to be used in that budget.
