Failure is in our federal, state representatives

Editor, the Advocate:

Regarding the state picking up federal failure editorial in the March 31 paper, I agree somewhat there is a failure. The failure is in the representatives we elect and expect them to do our work instead of working on getting re-elected. Money is the name of the game. Sequester is the law of the land. On the same theme, just where did the state get this bonanza? Thanks.
