These freeloading punks need to investigated , tried and incarcerated for their scheming back room deals. Let them work for .30 hour in prison. Look at the impact they have had on society vs say a pot dealer

I think it is time to initiate RECALL petitions for all 435 Representatives, all 100 Senators and the President and Vice President (if that's possible). These elected officials are all about postuing, instead of working together to get anything done. Clearly, these pople don't have the foggiest idea what average citizens' lives are like, and even more clearly, they don't CARE. We need to make a clean break with our current politicians and start over. Maybe the new people would listen to us (for a minute).

Absolutely not. No pay until there is a deal

I'm a volunteer as I'm not able to work full time right now. Even when I don't show up for "work" it matters. I assist a High School ESL instructor who has way too much on her plate. I love teaching the kids (and more than just English!). Many of these kids come to this country while often leaving family and friends behind. It's important that they have some continuity and stability. So, I'm concerned that those who have spent a lot of money to be elected to represent us are NOT...

I think that it's just too easy for them to waste our hard earned money. When are we going to stick our heads out our windows, fill the streets, gather together with joined arms and say that we're not going to take it anymore?

This Congress is shameful. No cooperation means no results. They are absolutely sitting on their thumbs these days. I'm disgusted & ashamed that they want to continue behaving like a bunch of juveniles.

Why is it always he Congresses fault. I think that Barack Obama should stay home instead of running all over the country spending our money.

And no pay check until you solve the problems.

Agreed Judy. Perfecto. And let's say it is a low-uninspiring amount, only to add the completion bonus, when it becomes law

Why didn't they do something 5 yrs ago? They have to draw the line somewhere. I feel bad but do we want to pay more taxes? We need to clean Washington up.
