The issue here is power and the money that follows that power. The Congress protects their wallets while putting ours in jeopardy. The extremes are the problem and this requires a clear statement from the electorate that responsible, moderate and effective leadership is the only thing that we will accept. We must require each representative to prove themselves in term of each of these factors or be voted out. The important positions cannot be Left or Right but the Middle Road of politics...

I support 120% No Deal, No Break. Yes, David Walker is right, the President and I add, Congress too, need to stop campaigning. All they have done is getting themselves elected and re-elected. They need to start working for us, governing, fixing problems, making America healthy in very way.

We all need to tell the politicians that they cannot take a break, no vacation until they fix the most pressing problems this country facing. Will your boss let you take a vacation if there are most...

We all need to tell the politicians that they cannot take a break, no vacation until they fix the most pressing problems this country facing. Will your boss let you take a vacation if there are most pressing things in front of you at work that would be disasters in the near future? Of course not. if you insist on taking the vacation, you may come back and find that you are out of job! So, why should Congress be able to take their breaks. They need to work hard for our hard earned money that we pay them. By the way, they get pay well and their pay is protected. They will not get a pay cut. They make sure of that!

I listened to the interview below, then wrote this comment. Our country, America has many serious problems. They are like cancer that the government has not tried to cure,..just treat the symptoms, but the cancer is still there, not treated. Kicking the can down all the time.

They should not have pay until they start doing their jobs. Also the amount of money, retirement and health coverage should be like everyone elses. Maybe they would grow a heart and understand how most Americans feel

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.
