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

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 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.

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

Maybe they are making too much money to do their job. Maybe they should do their job and then get paid like the rest of us.

The Congress is having too much to do any work. For them to work, it takes some miracles.

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

LET THEM GET PAID AN HOURLY WAGE. WORK 40 HRS..YOU GET PAID FOR FORTY HOURS. NO WORK THEN NO PAY!

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!

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.
