Right now, our Congress is the oldest its been since its inceptions more than 200 years ago. Each session, more and more members spend time away from the important decisions our country faces because they are incapacitated because they have served well into their 80s.
There is important work to do in the senate, yet Sen. Dianne Feinstein has been absent for more than a month due to illnesses she has attributed to her advanced age of 89, with no indication that she will return to office… ever.
Our hard-earned tax dollars go to pay them to legislate. Not stay home because they lack the the physical and mental capacity needed to be an effective representative.
