This iReport is part of an assignment:
Shutdown over: What next?
oShutdown causing withdrawl of Retirement moneies
I, for one, have had to deplete most of my savings to maintain paying the basic bills over the summer. With the loss of these "shutdown" days, I am forced to withdraw/close retirement accounts in order to prevent late/non payment fees, fines and even reposession of my car.
Since Congress has failed to do their jobs, we the American People should immediately FIRE everyone of them for complete failure to complete their basic job assignments. If anyone not in Congress did our jobs as poorly as they do theirs, we would be unemployed.
We should also immediately add an ammendment to the Constitution which is plain and easy to understand to prevent them from ever pulling this type of stunt again.
" No One in Congress shall be paid if they do not have a COMPLETE budget for the next fical year, in place by July 1st of the previous Fiscal year. Upon failure, Congress will also forfit all pay, compensation, vaction time, benefits and holidays until they complete a complete Fiscal Year Budget. Congress will continue in session, every day, including week-ends and holidays, after July 1st, until the budget is completed, passed and put into law."
It matters not which party someone wishes to blame because it is ALL of them. They left for the summer off, with pay, while we the people were force to take days off without pay. Congress is to blame as a whole, and as a whole should be replaced. They all forgot that they were elected by the PEOPLE,not the PARTY!!!
Enough said, DO YOUR JOB NOW or be fired, without those fancy high retirements you all love so much.
