Letter: Just fire them

Here is an idea on how to cut government spending immediately. Every member of Congress who stood and applauded when Obama said he can use his “pen and phone” without Congress/Legislation should be immediately fired.

Since they agree they and their staffs are irrelevant, t hey and their constituents can then live under rule by edict, instead of the rule of law.

I think that would save us a whole bunch of money, including their congressional pensions, since they abandoned their rightful duties.
