Most companies look at termination of employment when an employee doen't perform up to expectations. Any ideas?

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.

A BIG AMEN To That. How sad it is to where our Nation has come to. Why vote these people in if their not going to do their job? But why should they,they have it made. They don't work and look what they get paid,I could sit in a office,etc. as they do,whats hard about that. We the plan people could do a much better job then all of them put together. It is'nt education that makes a person do a better job,it's where their morals,standards,etc are. The TRUTH OF The Matter IS,All That Work In DC...

TRULY Are Suppose To Work For GOD,It's HIS GOV. Not Mans. It's In The Bible. Whats so hard about doing the right thing anymore,must be to easy,so they make it hard. Pray for our Leaders,thats the only way things will be where they should be. Remember GOD is still in control,but HE won't force mans will.

Why aren't they being furlowed (sp) as well. They are government employees too! They need to feel a hit in their wallet like the rest of us. Vacations should be their expenses not ours. They should also be required to pay their medical just like the rest of us. "We the People" does not seem to exist anymore. People have become GREEDY. Too many have lost their way and forgetting the one that really should matter: Jesus Christ! If he is in your heart your morals would be priority!

Karen Sue Timmons Woodall Nothing to do with this post but am curious if we are related as my maiden name is Timmons. Have not been able to find any living relatives on my Father's side. We weren't allowed to bring up his name from the time I was 5 due to a messy divorce that his Mother paid for my Mother to get. Would love to know if you are from NY?

If they suffered like others will due to they're own practice of doing nothing, I bet they would start caring, remember they also have health insurance paid for by us

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)

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!

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...

My wife often says there are a lot of people that don't even have enough back bone to hold their heads up. Give it a shot, get involved in something worthwhile. 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!!

No work no pay just like the rest of America. These people were elected to do a job for us by vote. It is past time they do the job they were elected to do. If they continue to dodge their responsibility we should have a grass roots movement to require a vote of no confidence in our representation. Then install someone with the ability and will to make the decisions that are now being avoided.

I think that it is time for the President to be impeached. His policies have stopped the Natural Gas pipeline. He was brought up by Communist and Muslim mentors and Americans allowed him to get into office. This is a man who has no business experience. He has done everything that he can to increase spending. He continues to print money that we do not have. He uses scare tactics to scare Americans. This is the first President that has not had a budget passed in 41/2 years. Sea Questation is...

He continues to print money that we do not have. He uses scare tactics to scare Americans. This is the first President that has not had a budget passed in 41/2 years. Sea Questation is not the answer. It hurts our military. I do not think that the Democratic party remembers history or they would not continue to put down the Tea Party movement. The Tea Party movement came from history when the Tea that was being imported from England because, England would not stop taxing us. We do not like taxes or dictators. Many of the States in the United States are ready to succeed from the Union. I believe that this is a great idea. We need to stop this President from passing anymore bills that force Americans to except a social agenda. We want to live by the Bible. Please impeach this President. The bills that he passed the third day in office shows how he feels. He reversed Roe verses Wade. We cannot afford for groceries to double again in the next 31/2 years. We cannot afford for gas to continue to increase. We cannot afford any more lame duck sessions, while we are asleep. We cannot afford anymore stimulus money borrowed from China. We cannot afford this President. We are a Christian Nation, not a Communist or Muslim country. We want it left that way. I pray that the Congress and House of Rep. of this country will hear the American peoples cry. Please fight for us! We deserve an American President. Our men and women of the military have fought for our freedom. We love this country. We do not need to have special clearance to say that we are Americans!

Where I worked....you didn't leave until the job was done....period! Who made those rules that they have so much non-productive time? and why can't they be challenged? This routine of non-negotiation needs to stop. Perhaps it needs to be like Scrabble? when you can't work with your selection, you dump them all back!

The house has at least given us a budget every years but the Senate hasn't given us one in 4 years and the President who should have his budget in by Feb.4 still has not gotten his in. Maybe we need to get all of the idiots in Washington including the head Idiot to just do their jobs.

It would be nice if they put the people that elected them first, instead of worrying about a long weekend, they have the money so they don't have to worry about their future, but to hell with the little people. I opinion we should fire all of them, and elect a new group that would work together and not fight all the time, and wast all of America's money on worthless projects.
