Letter: Imagine scenario of president working for us, not doing his job

The president of the United States is an elected official who works for us, right? OK, so having said that, here is a scenario for you:

 You are a proud, hardworking homeowner wanting to have some remodeling work done on your abode. You hire a home improvement contractor to do the work; he touts his reputation as a top-notch contractor. Now let us say it is some weeks later, nothing is completed, the contractor is elusive, things are confusing, he is giving excuse after excuse for not delivering the quality work he originally promised and in fact, is arrogantly demanding more money than you initially agreed upon.

My question is, as a homeowner, what would you do?
