Congressman Gets As Pissed Off As The American People

The American people are angry. We are angry about corporations owning our politicians. We are angry about representatives injecting their personal religious agendas into our government. We are angry that congress isn’t doing anything at all for social justice, the economy, or our suicidal treatment of the environment. Then there is immigration. The Senate passed a bipartisan deal that would create a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants, which has wide support in the house. The problem is that Speaker Boehner won’t bring the bill up to a vote. Watch Democratic Congressman Jared Polis (CO-2) express his outrage on the house floor:

About Jacob Daruvala

I am a 17 year old progressive from California. I first became interested in politics when President Obama ran for president in 2008. He was the first person I recognized as a modern day leader that I admired. Despite not being able to vote, I excitedly talked to people about him. This introduced me to the world of politics. I trained myself on the issues, I became more interested in history, and eventually decided that the world of politics would be my career. My interests in progressive writing are very broad. From LGBT rights, to universal healthcare, I am dedicated to using my voice to fight for what is right. Follow my articles here: https://twitter.com/JacobDaruvala

  1. Great and touching piece. I am inspired. It is time and past, that we need to get this Immigration bill passed. All of our ancestors were immigrants unless they were native Americans. What really ticks me off is people like Cruz, and Rubio denying others the same rights they themselves have been given.

    • All of our ancestors came here through legal channels and were not given handouts at the door. Instead, they had to prove they were sponsored or would have employment to take care of themselves. None were a burden to the country upon admittance. Is your mind open enough to see the difference?
