Why they want to cut stamps. but give free money and subsidies to companies that send jobs to China. Is crazy, what do you expect though. When the house speaker is drunk all day and rich?

Also trying to cut over time pay to "comp time" in a service based economy. Where the bulk of jobs don;t give vacations or "comp time".

Well there compassionate one. Most of the jobs are in a now service based economy. Due to to repubs deregulating and letting jobs in say manufacturing got over seas. And these jobs are only say 8 bux and hour and managers send you home early for labor cost bonus. And I have met plenty with college degrees on the serving floor of restaurants.
Oh ans some places exploit illegals to save money on labor. leaving American's jobless. Remember When a certain president. said if you got replaced by an illegal you did not want your job.How do you think his pals staff them oil fields in TExas?

check one of the websites about the incomes or net wealth of ANY of OUR representatives, Everyone of them earns over $3,000 a week, PLUS has offices, transportation, free banking, health insurance & much more paid for. Not a true working stiff in the bunch no matter which party.
Why do THEY NOT have Obama Care? Why do THEY NOT pay into social security? WHY do THEY get FREE paid trips & not even have to record them as an expense deduction on their taxes? Yes, some trips are 'business' related but there should be much more oversite.
That's a rather unfounded accusation about the house speaker being drunk all day. Have any pics, recordings or witnesses?....Didn't think so.

When the majority of voters quit getting in line for all of the undeserved freebies which are mostly legal bribes to get votes, then & only then will things change. THAT is the 'fix' as you put it.
I can vote 'tough love' of country but the hard working tax payers just keep paying more because that is the minority.

By the way, I have had foodstamps twice in my life, once for 30 days & once for 90 days. Know what? The foodstamps were worth about 130% per month of what I usually spent without them. I made them last me & my kids. I used them as a hand-up, NOT a hand-out. They are supposed to be AID, NOT income, they are supposed to be help, NOT support. The same as Section 8, medicaid, cellphones & more.
