Every politician needs to take a 50 percent paycut and pay for their own medical insurance. John Boehner is not in this for his salary but for all the perks and money he will receive from all coorporations.
Not one governor runs for the salary of the governor.
Not one elected official in Washington is in it for the paycheck. They are in it for the millions they will make after they leave office.
Congress pay for your medical bills, we are broke.
How can your conscience let the tax paying broke american people pay for your lifelong medical benefit?

Its too sad the El Paso Times is such a Republican sided newspaper. So many important national issues like the one in Iowa and not a word of it.
All negative articles about Rick Perry or John Cornyn go unmentioned.
But you will read everything about Mexico and Juarez and illegal immigrants every day.
Small town news for small town intelligence.

Looks like the Republics new guard is shaking up the old Washington cronies. Democrats could take a lesson here.

Those who voted for Republicans in November now must pay the price for their stupidity. Now Americans must reap the disaster these Republican-backers have sown.

Experience proves that Republicans are INCAPABLE of governing. They simply cannot do it and all of us will suffer because of their ineptitude.

Remember, the Tea Parties were funded by multi-billionaires and promoted by Fox News solely for the benefit of big business and the rest of us be damned.

Enjoy it, suckers, you are now going to get what you voted for.
