Every senator and congress person who went home early yesterday for a long weekend should be fired and have their retirement packages and benefits taken away. Any where else anybody who walks off the job gets to stay home so they should too. Also no unemployment insurance and a restraining order stating that person is not allowed near congress or hold a position which would have direct or indirect contact or influence of congress members for life.
We can only wish!
I agree with you Taylor.All congress cares about is themselves and what they can get free from all of the tax payers 99 percent of their benefits should be taken away.
They should all have to suffer through the same health care debacle we have to endure just to see a doctor and then pay outrageous prices for out medicine.
We need to get their attention
Just how do we have any power over these politicians? You know how! VOTES !! If you don't like the way they swing, do not vote for them.
Complete lack of priorities. The. Debt should be the only topic on the floor until it is adequately addressed.
fat chance ever seeing that Steve ?
they should start with the debt by refusing all people in this country that are not citizens all social freebies, cut out all the millions of dollars sent to foreiegn contries that hate the usa. Not keep on destroying the people born and raised in this country
And stop sticking our noses in every other country's business. If they can't get along, let them take care of themselves. I am sick and tired of every country that has a civil war of their own coming to the US for help. And the government is so stupid it can't say no.
With what we the taxpayers pay these people plus their lavish retirement and health benefits they should be working non-stop. Only working 49% of the time is part-time work and in the private sector people who work part-time get no health insurance, retirement or any other benefits. We could save a ton of money if we got rid of all their benefits. That would be a start as far as cutting entitlements. Lets start with Congresses entitlements.
They do have a job. But lets petiton to suspend their paychecks until they accomplish their job responsibilities.
They talk about entitlements and us hard working retirees not entitled to them. I think our government gets way to many entitlements. Take theirs away. What we spend would be a lot less.
These so called politicans are begining to sound like Hitler before WW11. The multimillionaries that are behind it are no better then Hitler, they want to distroy the USA because of their greed.
Everyone of them including the pres. needs to kick their acts together and do what is right, not what they want to stay in their comfort zones. I am ashamed of every stinking one of them. They do not represent this country, we the people do and maybe we need to boot them all out and get the job done.
When this "cliff" arrives is everyone one, and I mean everyone going to give up their paychecks too on Capital Hill etc!
This is not about your party of choice
This about our country & our children's future !!!!!!
The few must pay their share as have the many.
The middle and lower class should not have to suffer any more then what they already do. What is the government doing without? They have it all! No need for anything, foood, medical, clothing, housing, bills, etc. They don't have any of the worries like we do. We are one nation and need to work together as one nation.
