It is time for our federal House and Senate to give up their pay, free lunches, free rides to work. Do that for maybe 6 months. Americans cannot afford $166.00 for food a day. How about $3385.00 a week pay..Now really is that right? NO, everything they do is paid for by Americans, who work hard just to live. Clearly the US will catch up if their pay and benefits are cut off. The time has come to STOP all the party garbage in Washington and look into the real problems. It is a party playing government. Do they not realize that we Americans know what is going on in Washington. No, we are not blind to what has been going on for the past 5 years! Tea party, hello republicans, how can you be so party oriented, well here is how, Koch brothers are buying Washington. That is what our government has been all about. Oh yes, Obamacare, try to sabatoge that also. Why? President Obama carried out a campaign promise to Americans. Really it is all about big business and how they can hang onto their money, while most Americans can hardly make it day to day. Children, suffering from living in poverty, money stress in families causing more divorces, again the children are affected. This may not be if Washington starts thinking about true Americans. The ones that would really like to be working and pay their fair share of taxes to the corrupt Washington government. I would march to Washington D.C if i could afford tires for our car and the expense to get there. Most Americans are sick of all that is happening in Washington D.C. I refuse to even go voting this year. When the corruption of big business halts buying our government, then I will vote again. Threats to shut down our US government. What are these people thinking? Do they really believe it will make things better? NO, it means they will get more funding for their next campaign! Just shut down Senators and Representastives income, perks, free travel, free rides to work, (while many Americans can hardly afford public transportation to work), and give up their own healthcare.
