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.
I think we need term limitations and campaign spending limitations. I am tired of hearing all the rhetoric during the campaign (during which an obscene amount of money is spent), only to have Congress stand around with their arms folded and their bottom lips stuck out like two-year-olds who don't get their way on something. THEN they want to take a break? Noone wants to work together.....vote them all out!
What it probably is going to take to make the change that is needed is a revolution! The constitution that are forefathers set up is being destroyed by a corrupt gov't who is implementing Socialism and is not being held accountable for it's blatant violations of our constitution. Remember that the gov't is supposed to be for the people, by the people, and of the people! Well it doesn't take a rocket Scientist to see that our Gov't is clearly going against that principle! Wake up to those of you who do not see what is going on!
They should be paid according to their production just like everyone else
They do what they want workout consequences. I would go to jail if I did what they do
I don't want a deal, its all hype and bullshit. The cuts over a 10 yr period don't amount to one day of spending. They need to stop spending this one way they will
Congressman should only receive pay for when they work...also should be docked salary for doing nothing.
Agree with most posts here, and my thoughts are that we as Americans pay, elect our public officials so "We The People" should be able to have a voice even though those same officials do not listen. They're pay goes on even if a fiscal cliff or termination of jobs because of, what I call Bullies can't decide on our budget, pitiful.
They need a major cut in pay. They don't do anything. Minimum wage is to much money for the B*****DS.
