The American media likes to report that “Congress” isn’t getting anything done.
For example, for the last several months the media has been reporting that “Congress” hasn’t been passing a relief bill. That doesn’t give voters any information they can use. It just tells the public “Congress” is failing them, etc. But it doesn’t tell them WHO to hold accountable and so people turn against government in general. And against democracy.
Let The Public Know WHO
It was Republicans who blocked the bills. Voters need that information for democracy to work and hold the right people accountable so the country can get better. Don’t blame “Congress,” let the pubic know WHO to hold accountable so democracy can work.
My drumbeat on this has been going on for a while.
Writing "Congress" basically tells people govt and democracy don't work.
"Congress" did not "fail to agree." REPUBLICAN senators blocked it.
Our news media fails to provide information that voters need. For democracy to work voters need to know who to hold accountable. https://t.co/7tQOeb0IRY
