Our Public SERVANTS! Ha! Those guys don't have the concept of the word in their vocabulary. The way they use the word isn't what the rest of us mean when we say it. Let me list some synonyms (my view of their use) Lazy, useless, greedy, privileged, corrupt, partisan, oh and did I say LAZY.
How do you think you would fare in the job?
I'd leave after four years and not prolong the agony
Term limits are looking better all the time, especially when we have a do nothing part time congress, taking care of themselves and scratching their friends backs. Look at what they do for themselves, pay, retirement, insurance, vacation and perks, all as public servants!!
Term limits will not change that problem. See my comment. Campaign finance reform. REAL reform, not some watered down BS. No outside money allowed. Public financing only. Then the congress will be doing our business and scratching our backs.
I think term limits are a good thing. Maybe better would be a requirement to have spent time in industry in order to be elected to Congress or the Presidency. Being forced to live with all the same rules they make for us would open their eyes.
Its time to work, complete your assignments before leaving Washington or give up your position and go home to stay. You need to return your pay increase and live like the rest of us do.
You got that right...
Tell it like it is, baby! <3
Dear friendsWe are invite All charities and well wisher's...and the global community who are interested about human rights and democracy rights to support us to reach our goal and support us to make better future to our mother land...for more details..
Let's tell Congress to do their job!
where is their work ethics?? self absorb and self center, why should they do any work at all if they can just get huge salary on the expenses of poor people like us. Free lunch all the way.
The Senate is holding things up. Not Congress!
THEY ARE ALL TO BLAME FOR HOLDING THINGS UP!
I would feel so guilty taking a paycheck that I didn't earn. Before I got hurt as a Deputy Sheriff I had to work double shifts just to support my family. Would be nice to sit back and collect a salary for doing nothing. (Not for me)
YES..THAT WOULD BE NICE. MAYBE THEY SHOULD COLLECT MINIMUM WAGE AND TRY TO SURVIVE ON THAT PAY.
Congress no workin results, no pay. Keep it Simple.
WE ARE ON THE SAME PAGE.
I AGREE 1001%
Most companies look at termination of employment when an employee doen't perform up to expectations. Any ideas?
I agree with you 100% must be nice to vote in your own pay raise as the country goes to hell!
Ya fire all of the Congressman they don't do anything except collect welfare from us poor slobs.
Where do I get a job where I can say what I want to get paid. Pay the bums to punch a time clock and get paid by the hour.
Richard Crooks # minimum wage
Richard Crooks They are on a much better WELFARE system than they allow for the people that voted them in... All their SALARIES need to be CUT... We get evaluations and if we have bad ones there are consequences. They don't even care about our issues... I have tried to contact many of the politicains because of the KY laws.... Here they award child molesters money from divorces and let them do alford pleas as well as NOT make them register.... ASSHOLES.... I bet you if it were their family they would be all over it!
YEP THEY SHOULD HAVE TO TAK4E CARE OF BUSINESS OF OUR COUNTRY BEFORE THEY LEAVE FOR 2 WEEKS TO CAMPAIGN. IF WE DID THAT WE WOULDN'T HAVE A JOB FOR LONG. AND THEY SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO CAMPAIGN ON OUR TIME ( GETTING PD. WHILE CAMPAIGNING) NO WONDER THE GOV. IS GOING BROKE.
Jim Wallace Let's not forget their benefits for life after they leave office. While they sit back and watch pensions being stolen the middle class. I think if your not at the job you should lose those as well.
unbeleivable the bennies they get, may as well call them princes and princesses, that's their status for them and their children
Why hire/vote them in if they are not going to do their job anyway ? I say fire them if they cannot take the time to do the job WE THE PEOPLE GAVE THEM to do
Impeach Barack Obama is a wonderful idea
it time to fumigate the white house and start over
To all the pompous, self righteous, foppish, stuffed suits in Washington D.C. Do your jobs damnit, lest you find yourselves unemployed, underemployed, struggling to pay rent and utilities or even homeless like so many people you pretend to care about when the truth none of you give a damn about anything but lining your pockets with money you did nothing to earn ergo you do not deserve to have it.
Right on, Tony, but you forget, they don't live under the same rules that they force us to, they have a guaranteed retirement (not SS), much much better insurance, and after they leave office they can all go on to become lobbyists making a great deal more money than they were in Washington. They stand to lose virtually nothing so why do they care? You have to hit them where it hurts and causes the most distress like they have us, but with their "own set of rules" this is not likely to...

I too am very frustrated and think we should fire them all but we can't. What do we do next? I'm open to any and all suggestions!
Kill them all starting with Rubio
I can't believe no one is interested in this subject. With all the grumbling, you would think people with at least sign a petition that could have an impact on those rascals with enough participation. Guess these are the same people that are always crying but don't go to the polls. I have an opinion about people like that, but don't dare put it in writing. Probably wouldn't do any good anyway! My wife often says there are a lot of people that don't even have enough back bone to hold...

You just might feel good taking a position on something. Get off the fence and encourage others to do the same, it's the only way we will ever be able to take our country back!!
Media ... Bought and paid for by politicians, corps, charity orgs, bankers. American ppl .... Sheep stuck in a narcissistic passive aggressive fog!
I sign every one I get that I believe in, which are most of them.
No more breaks
I don't get any vacation why should you , seems like you all should get your asses to work before there is no more America -)no that. idiots, it doesn't take a rocket scientist find some balls even if you have to barrow them. From sara pallin she has extra i'm sure she wouldn't mind for our country..............................................
Hey, remember that those scum only have to serve one term and they are set for life. Their pension, paycheck, medical and all those perks continue for their whole family,even after they leave. Just serve one term and they're golden. Can you or I do that?
AND the reason for that is they made it into law without the American people's approval;. they just did it,
REMEMBER, MANY OF THEM HAVE NOT PAID FOR A GALLON OF GAS IN MANY MANY YEARS,OR FOR A VEHICLE , OR FOR THE INSURANCE FOR THAT VEHICLE, FOR HEALTH INSURANCE OR CARE (OR MUCH OF ANYTHING ELSE THAT WE CALL DAILY NEEDS) NOR HAVE THEY MOST LIKELY EVEN BEEN TO A GROCERY STORE LATELY SO THEY ARE ALL VERY WELL OUT OF TOUCH WITH THOSE OF US WHO STRUGGLE WITH SUCH THINGS DAY BY DAY.
If Congress continues to take these breaks while not getting the job done they should be unemployed come election day the majority of these elected officials are reelected based on their party affiliation and their popularity remember this on election day send them to the unemployment line.
What makes you say Congress has done nothing?? They voted themselves a pay raise THEN, went on vacation........
