Washington--Career politician James Sensenbrenner from Wisconsin is sad to see how Congress can't seem to get anything done.

"I remember when I first joined the United States Congress in 1979, and how both political parties worked together to get things done. Now, it is sad to see, because both parties can't seem to work together." James Sensenbrenner said.

Mr. Sensenbrenner looked sad as he spoke about the good old days of being a politician.

"I became a politician because I like politics and I really wasn't that good of lawyer, so politics offered me a job. The Congress of my youth was a great place to be, but I don't know if I can keep doing it for so long. Sure, being in Congress made me a lot of personal wealth. If the current atmosphere in Congress continues, well, I might need to retire."

When asked if he is thinking about retiring, Mr. Sensenbrenner said: "I might retire, but I might not. I like my job because there aren't a lot of work days, and the pay is really good."
