Jeff Knight made a good point in his letter in the Wednesday, June 18 Star-Telegram, when he urged voters to “vote them all out.”

But, the problem is the system itself. No matter who we elect, they have to work for the same money interests that the current members of congress work for.

That’s what we should really be upset about.

If you are a Republican you should be mad that labor unions are paying to get their members of congress reelected. If you are a Democrat you should be mad that the Koch brothers are paying to get their members reelected.

So, we can “vote them all out.” But, the people we vote in will have to work for the same special interests.
