2016 can't come soon enough to suit me

In response to Garrett Blahunka's May 6 letter, I must say he is just like the current occupant of the Oval Office (doesn't have a clue).

The jobs bill of 2011 was blocked by the Democratically controlled Senate.

Harry Reid should have been kicked out of his job as Senate majority leader eons ago. He has done nothing for the national economy.

He won't even let more than 30 bipartisan passed House jobs bills come up for debate and vote.

And President Barack Obama keeps telling lie after lie and won't let the Keystone pipeline bill get passed, which would open up 42,000 jobs almost immediately. Even his union cronies are upset with him. 2016 can't come soon enough. Anyone would be better than what we have now.

Do you think the Lake County Solid Waste Management District should pay its new director less than its former director?
