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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The sqeeky wheel gets the grease. If you don't bitch, they'll think everything is kool, and won't bother working it out.

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
