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.
BECAUSE AMERICA IS IMPORTANT TO ME AND I WANT TO SEE MY GRANDSON GROW UP IN A FREE COUNTRY
I agree with you, but the way it is going and fast is there will be no freedom in this country for anyone
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.
My children and grandchildren will inherit this debt. In the near term, as a retiree, I worry that the assets I have saved will vanish and I will be forced to make choices detremental to my and my wifes well being. These are my accumulartions working for over 46 years.
They take and take and give nothing bacK....FIRE ALL OF THEM.
they all need to be prosceuted & new blood put in office my dog has more sence than a lot of them.
I agree and the people that want to be in office should really be checked out to see if they care about the american people that are legal and make our country stronger by being honest and work hard to change all of this corrucption
PART TIMERS ARE SUPPOSED TO LOSE THE BENEFITS RIGHT?
Are you kidding, lose benefits, I never had a part time job that had benefits. Employers make sure to hire all part timers so they don't have to give benefits. They are just as bad as the government.
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.
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...
