The answer to the Debt ceiling negotiations.
Stop paying the salary and health care benefits for every Congress man and Senator past and present starting immediately until the debt ceiling is raised!!!!!

The answer to the debt ceiling is cut the 650 billion defense budget both sides passed.They passed that without blinking an eye and now repukes want to cut all social programs for the poor and working class people.While keeping taxes low for the super rich.

Do you believe everything the the liberal loons and the leftwing media tells you? It must be scary to be a democrat now that the people(of both parties)are seeing thru all of the lies and solicist programs that the president loves.If people took the time to read what the republicans want to cut and not listen to the B/S that is comming from the White House they would see most of what you said is pure lies from the left.The dems are running scared and will say or do anything to stay in office.Sit back and watch all of the smears,spin and lies that will be comming out in the next few months,it will be very distasteful to say the least.Do yourself a favor and keep an open mind,it will be comming from BOTH partys.(I belong to neither party)Just saying.

AFTER THE DEBT CEILING IS RESOLVED LETS VOTE OUT BOEHNER DENT, CANTOR, RYAN, MCconnell and the rest of the money sucking republicans out of office. Over the last two years they caused us enough trouble, VOTE THEM OUT 2012.

I don't think raising taxes are going to help fix things at all. They can raise taxes all they want and it will not fix anything they will just spend more. As much as I do not want to see entitlement programs cut our government simply can not continue to just print money. The reality is programs across the board need to be cut. We can't simply keep printing money and continue to live in denial. We have all had to cut back why should the government be any different.

I don't think they should receive any benefit after they leave office. Isn't the satisfaction of serving the American people enough? Most are wealthy and can afford to pay there own way.

I would much rather pay soldiers who take great risks and make great sacrifices for me than pay for a mob of lazy, ungrateful bums on social programs. All that gets us is more crime and new generations of lazy bums. To be blunt; I don't care at all if such worthless excuses for people starve.

Boy what an attitude! Problem is if they have no money for food, there will be more crime! The wealthy have had it great for the last 10 years! They have more money they can spend is most peoples lifetime and then some. Many got it by wheeling and dealing.
And no our troops shouldn't have to go without pay or neither should our Seniors on Social Security. BTW, not everybody receiving Medicaid is a lazy bumb either!

Change the laws to let us shoot any criminal that steps onto our property; problem solved. Believe me, if crime goes up enough, people will do so regardless of any law. Might as well not prosecute them for cleaning up the trash! What the rich have or don't have is none of our business. Maybe they got rich by paying attention to their own lives, instead of obsessing about others. Social Security and Medicare have their own separate income streams so they should be OK for the time being. Medicaid is nothing more than another welfare program that keeps the trash alive for the rest of us to deal with. I suppose we can keep it for people in nursing homes, but cut the rest off. They can become adults, or they can pay the price of their irresponsibility.

You sound like a bought and paid for liberal shill. Since your IP says Allentown, PA, I am going to guess you are a steelworkers union thug. I would guess you were an union organizer, but you don't seem to be smart enough.
