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.

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.

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

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.

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!!

Cathy Miller

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.

Its time to work, complete your assignments before leaving Washington or give up your position and go home to stay. You need to return your pay increase and live like the rest of us do.

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)

Hey, remember that those scum only have to serve one term and they are set for life. Their pension, paycheck, medical and all those perks continue for their whole family,even after they leave. Just serve one term and they're golden. Can you or I do that?

REMEMBER, MANY OF THEM HAVE NOT PAID FOR A GALLON OF GAS IN MANY MANY YEARS,OR FOR A VEHICLE , OR FOR THE INSURANCE FOR THAT VEHICLE, FOR HEALTH INSURANCE OR CARE (OR MUCH OF ANYTHING ELSE THAT WE CALL DAILY NEEDS) NOR HAVE THEY MOST LIKELY EVEN BEEN TO A GROCERY STORE LATELY SO THEY ARE ALL VERY WELL OUT OF TOUCH WITH THOSE OF US WHO STRUGGLE WITH SUCH THINGS DAY BY DAY.

If Congress continues to take these breaks while not getting the job done they should be unemployed come election day the majority of these elected officials are reelected based on their party affiliation and their popularity remember this on election day send them to the unemployment line.

What makes you say Congress has done nothing?? They voted themselves a pay raise THEN, went on vacation........

Part of the problem is Congress in in session too long! The debt goes on because the (Congress) created it...DUH. The spending goes on if they are in session or not.. Congress is now ' Royality '. But they must obey party leaders (Viceroys) decisions. Out of lockstep and you are gone... not too bad salary and unbeliveable beniftis that go on till they croke...
