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!
Kill them all starting with Rubio
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...

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!!
Media ... Bought and paid for by politicians, corps, charity orgs, bankers. American ppl .... Sheep stuck in a narcissistic passive aggressive fog!
I sign every one I get that I believe in, which are most of them.
No more breaks
Dear friendsWe are invite All charities and well wisher's...and the global community who are interested about human rights and democracy rights to support us to reach our goal and support us to make better future to our mother land...for more details..
I don't get any vacation why should you , seems like you all should get your asses to work before there is no more America -)no that. idiots, it doesn't take a rocket scientist find some balls even if you have to barrow them. From sara pallin she has extra i'm sure she wouldn't mind for our country..............................................
Most companies look at termination of employment when an employee doen't perform up to expectations. Any ideas?
I agree with you 100% must be nice to vote in your own pay raise as the country goes to hell!
Ya fire all of the Congressman they don't do anything except collect welfare from us poor slobs.
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 # minimum wage
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.
unbeleivable the bennies they get, may as well call them princes and princesses, that's their status for them and their children
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
Impeach Barack Obama is a wonderful idea
it time to fumigate the white house and start over
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!
Let's tell Congress to do their job!
where is their work ethics?? self absorb and self center, why should they do any work at all if they can just get huge salary on the expenses of poor people like us. Free lunch all the way.
The Senate is holding things up. Not Congress!
THEY ARE ALL TO BLAME FOR HOLDING THINGS UP!
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)
YES..THAT WOULD BE NICE. MAYBE THEY SHOULD COLLECT MINIMUM WAGE AND TRY TO SURVIVE ON THAT PAY.
Congress no workin results, no pay. Keep it Simple.
WE ARE ON THE SAME PAGE.
I AGREE 1001%
Why should they care? After all, the have nothing to do but squabble with no concrete resolutions, other than spend over $20,,000,000 of our money on "fact finding missions" AKA Boondoggles, even by some who announced they were retiring and/or lost their seat and then were lame ducks, and still went touring at our expense! Everyone of them ought to be FIRED!
Stop talking and start Voting!!
Our Public SERVANTS! Ha! Those guys don't have the concept of the word in their vocabulary. The way they use the word isn't what the rest of us mean when we say it. Let me list some synonyms (my view of their use) Lazy, useless, greedy, privileged, corrupt, partisan, oh and did I say LAZY.
How do you think you would fare in the job?
I'd leave after four years and not prolong the agony
Term limits are looking better all the time, especially when we have a do nothing part time congress, taking care of themselves and scratching their friends backs. Look at what they do for themselves, pay, retirement, insurance, vacation and perks, all as public servants!!
Term limits will not change that problem. See my comment. Campaign finance reform. REAL reform, not some watered down BS. No outside money allowed. Public financing only. Then the congress will be doing our business and scratching our backs.
I think term limits are a good thing. Maybe better would be a requirement to have spent time in industry in order to be elected to Congress or the Presidency. Being forced to live with all the same rules they make for us would open their eyes.
There are links below to my petition as to link this petition of mine to this petition.
This could help the poor and keep more and more people from going poor. The recession we're facing now could go worse than the great depression or be just as bad.
This is to help with the economic downturn. I have a petition below that’s for the economy and ridiculous gas prices and other things affecting us. Let’s sign mine after signing this one. I need 1,000,000 signatures in total.
This is for the thing on causes.com.
Reshaping the World Petition.
Pledge to Reshaping the World.
We should also take a stand against greed. I blamed it all on high gas prices for driving schools on waiting lists. It's common sense for first time learners for driving to have behind the wheel for car insurance reduction and most important safety of learning.
We are taking stands against greed as well. You people who signed this petition should sign mine if you haven't. The author of this petition should sign mine on the link as well if haven’t.
There’s also a petition on sign on. Here’s that link below as it’s for the reshaping the world to improve our lives.
IMO Republican pols in Washington are doing a great job.We sent them there with only one mandate. Stop Obama. They have been doing their best. I salute them for their effort.
