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.

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.

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.

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.
