The party in control repeatedly fails us

To the Editor:

Republican Senator Pat Toomey says in his weekly email: "It is a terrible shame that Congress repeatedly waits until the 11 hour, with a potential government shutdown looming overhead, to pass stop-gap measures like these. The Senate could have — and should have — approved essential federal funding through the proper appropriations process months ago."

Senator Toomey is absolutely right – his GOP, the political party that is in control of our government, repeatedly fails to work on behalf of the American people. When our elected official confesses that his own party has failed us, it is time for us as citizens to vote for a different party that will do the work of the people, instead of line the pockets of the super rich and corporations.
