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!

I'd like to pose a simple idea: let your representatives know that they are personally liable for any debt that they vote (or have voted) to create. They are also responsible for any legislation that causes the people harm (financial, physical or emotional). The precedent for this is seen with CEOs of corporations who have caused harm to their shareholders or the public. Since our elected representatives are acting as fiduciary to the people, they are personally liable for the debt they...

Actually, I think Pat McElraft and all our elected officials are doing the best they can. So many of them need money because they have to be away from home and pay expenses for maintaining a place and living in distant cities while they are away from home. One way I found to keep my costs down in my "Write in Campaign for President" last year was to live in a tent, provided for free to me by a wonderful man named Fish, who had lived in the tent for 2 years while working as the mechanic for...

Actually, I think Pat McElraft and all our elected officials are doing the best they can. So many of them need money because they have to be away from home and pay expenses for maintaining a place and living in distant cities while they are away from home. One way I found to keep my costs down in my "Write in Campaign for President" last year was to live in a tent, provided for free to me by a wonderful man named Fish, who had lived in the tent for 2 years while working as the mechanic for Harrisburg Bike Taxi, under the I-83 bridge in Harrisburg, PA. I was also blessed to eat free meals provided by Downtown Daily Bread, Unitarians of Harrisburg, Harrisburg Area Community College Culinary Program and the several churches who served dinners by the Courthouse, the "Food Not Bombs" folks who served vegetarian meals once a week by the clock and many other groups providing meals and snacks. I also feel blessed to have shared those meals with the many wise, very real and intelligent people who lived on the streets and woods. People had so much time to converse and tell me their stories of how they came to be living the way they were. Some by choice and others through no fault of their own other than not having money or a job. Others, like Greg, had money and a job but wasn't making enough to afford a place to live because his job required him to be bussed a long distance one way to work and back, thus money was going to buy food. Sadly, I met him on the street several nights with a cup in hand because his bus to and from work had caused him not to be able to get to the free meals and because work was holding his pay for a couple weeks since he just started. Greg was always positive despite having all his things stolen one day while we waited in the rain by the Courthouse for a meal that didn't arrive. Living in Harrisburg this past summer and seeing the increasing number of people who were homeless and needing aid is one of the many reasons I've become such an advocate for showing people, especially kids, how to garden and grow and prepare their own food. So much of our educational and "safety net" system/institutions do nothing to show people how to do the simplest things to take care of themselves. We are trained to be in our minds and heads with a great cost to our own hearts and souls. Do we feed people for a day or teach them how to feed themselves and others for a lifetime? Sadly the fishing version of this saying seems to have produced great depletion of our fishery resources. Thus my added interest in developing oyster reefs that create habit for invertebrates and finfish while at the same time mitigating erosion and creating ecotourism opportunities where people can access the oyster reefs by swimming, kayaking, or sailing to them under their own power.

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...

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!

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?

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...

FYI When congressmen and senators go home on recess, it is not to take a vacation. It is to go back and meet with their constituents in person to receive their "marching orders" for the next session.
