(Washington) - The U.S. Congress today went on strike, refusing to pass any laws necessary to the survival, security and benefit of U.S. citizens.

Senator Ted Kennedy (D-Mass) stated, "We're proud to have done nothing for the American people during the past 10 years and look forward to being on strike for another 10 years."

U.S. Congressman Tom Lantos (D-California) added, "Congress went on strike today and will continue to be on strike until we get what we want. We want total control over people's lives and money, with no accountability. We close to getting that now and we won't stop striking until we get it."

When asked about being on strike and ignoring the critical issues facing America, such as illegal immigration, healthcare, social security, etc, Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, attired yet again in another smart designer pant suit, responded, "As politicians we don't care about taking care of business and doing our jobs representing America and its citizens, we only care about playing politics and getting re-elected. That's what we do all day here in Washington."

The only exceptions to Congress being on strike are the 2 senators from California, Diane Feinstein and Barbara Boxer. As long-time U.S. Senators, for the 8 years they have been in Washington, they have NOT been on strike, but no one could tell the difference.
