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.

Complete lack of priorities. The. Debt should be the only topic on the floor until it is adequately addressed.

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.

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.

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...
