I am personally of the opinion that any current member of Congress who, in 1999, voted to REPEAL Glass-Steagall should be ineligible for re-election. So I have posted a compilation of those current members of Congress for people to share with their friends and neighbors.

The Congress That Crashed America http://home.ptd.net/~aahpat/aandc/congcrash.html

Additionally, others have posted the links for the Congressional Progressive Caucus as a list of members of Congress that OWS supporters could feel a greater affinity with. I would also add the Congressional Black Caucus. Except for those members of the Progressive Caucus and Black Caucus who, in 1999, voted to repeal Glass-Steagall. These dangerously stupid people have no business being in Congress.

Members of the Progressive Caucus who voted for repeal of Glass-Steagall:

Congress is just awful. I don't like any of them. There is a reason that their approval rating is so low. They don't do anything useful to the country!! Hell they can't balance the budget, but they can agree to count pizza sauce as a vegetable!! Are you fking kidding me. Get your heads out of your aes and do something useful for once. The media always talks about the President's approval rating- lets start talking about Congress' approval rating!!

Watch Joe Rogan talk about OWS- http://takewallst.blogspot.com/

Getting rid of them all is probably not a doable goal.

But focusing on getting out of Congress these idiots who have done so much real harm to so many in so little time I think can have a real effect in changing both the complexion and demeanor of Congress. In our favor.

It makes sense to vote on past actions rather than future promises or present excuses for reasons they acted in a way that does not really reflect what they are all about.

Precisely.

These people who have done so much real material damage to America should be judged by their actions in the court of public opinion and in the polls.
