We must take care of Americans first

The news media recently reported that the U.S. government is spending $800 million a year to provide for foreign prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. We are talking about 150 to 200 people. The destruction from Hurricane Sandy has affected thousands of American citizens who still, after months of devastation, do not have the basic necessities that we all require. The president and all members of Congress should be removed from office for failing to take care of our citizens first. That $800 million could go a long way to rebuild the destruction that Hurricane Sandy handed out.
