We have the money to pay our debt we just need to cut spending on welfare, food stamps, the military, worthless projects like a 15 million dollar Amtrack station in Rochester and $10,000 radios for the military. Plus stop the wars.

Shut down the food stamp and welfare nonsense.
Create living wage jobs, so people won't need food stamps. However; that's not what businesses want, they want a slave workforce. That's why they sent jobs to China, Canada and Mexico. Without good decent paying jobs; America can and will never get out from under this deficit, and that's real. The fact that Corporations sent jobs overseas shows me and should show the American people, that it's not about this country, but about individuals getting richer and richer.

Most countries in the world do not have Food Stamps.S disibility and welfare. Work or die. It is soon to happen in the USA. The USA will crash in debt. There will be no money to pay people to sit home and play Farmville.

Remember back when Ross Perot on the 1992 presidental debats ... He said that if congress passed the NAFT agreement, all you will hear is a giant sucking sound as american jobs went to mexico.

I saw on the news Obama won't let senior citizens get their checks unless Congress raises the debt ceiling. Why did Electoral College elect this evil man as president? TWICE!

Now that the shutdown is over(for a few months until the next showdown), Obama is focusing like a laser on the most important thing for America, giving amnesty to illegal immigrants!

Now the morons are blaming the "shutdown" in October for the poor economy in September. Very funny, too bad some folks will believe it. A loss by the Yankees next month will cause your dog to run away yesterday. Thanks Jason Furman, you are an idiot and a tool.

Most Americans' lives went on as normal. Only those receiving a government paycheck had a temporary negative experience due to the partial shutdown.

All those folks who thought the OWS was all a big joke, take a look at how the banks manipulated the congress and Clinton to repeal the Glass-Steagall act, which later caused the 2008 financial crisis.

And then the banks conned that retard Bush into giving them a bailout.

If people were more informed ... we would all be out protesting!

yeah, maybe ... the ones who felt it most were:

Any americans who were planning a vacation to a national part and were driven out by paid guards who's only purpoose was to make the taxpayers feel the pain more than the politicians.

And those government employees basically got a three week paid vacation when they got thier back pay.

Maybe if this shutdown would have lasted longer, the GUMMINT would have scaled back the spying on americans, harrassing lawabiding americans at the airports and reduced meddling in foriegn affairs because they just couldn't afford it.
