Something has to be done, because obviously, what they are currently doing is failing. While they are at it, maybe they should add in NO bailouts to companies (especially auto and financial institutions). Also, NO raises, bonuses and otherwise NO financial gain for high salaried politicians and government officials until they fix this issue that the people have so trustingly and willingly elected them to fix rather than argue and debate over it forever resulting in a greater deficit. Lastly, rather than allow people that live off of welfare to laze around and collect a check, maybe it should be required that they assist in some way to better their community since the tax payers are funding them. Such as, providing day care for other parents that DO have jobs, free of charge; or if they have vehicles, providing a free taxi service for parents so their kids can get to and from school. Some form of community service that is beneficial to the majority rather than being overall parasites.
