(This is cross-posted from Harpocrates Speaks.)

Dear Members of Congress,

I recently learned that you passed, overwhelmingly, a resolution (PDF) reaffirming “In God We Trust” as the official motto of the United States. I am left to wonder, why?

Have you, unbeknown to the rest of the country, implemented legislation to help create jobs? Have you worked to improve health care? Cut down our debt? Eliminate waste?

How much time did you take away from important matters to not only vote on this, but to draft, read, refer to committee, approve and all the steps required to bring this to the full House?
