Shutdown over: What next?
America Held Hostage By Congress!
There is a petition going around right now demanding NO PAY FOR CONGRESS! It's hilarious to see the RNC grandstanding with checks to keep some things open when we are being held hostage for something that was already voted by the Supreme Court to be constitutional!THE SPENDING BILL DID NOT PASS BECAUSE IT'S LOADED WITH RESTRICTIONS ON THE THE ACA. I am so sick of the whining of Republicans since the 2008 election. It got worse when Obama won 2012! WHEN IN THE HELL WILL THEY GET OVER THEIR LOSS AND RECOGNIZE THAT OBAMA WON!!!!! I have family members who are furloughed. One a husband and wife who both work for the government. How fair is it that our elected officials still get their cushy checks and not to mention THE HEALTHCARE THAT WE THE PEOPLE HELP PAY FOR!!! GET OVER IT!!!!!
PEOPLE are that NAIVE really? I mean come on! No pay? do you think for one second these MILLIONAIRES are in politics for the money? NO, they are in politics for (two reasons) (A) the power and (B) getting re-elected. Doing this RIDICULOUS petition (sorry) and of course everyone applauds it, is like sending your kid to their room and expect that to make them learn their lesson. Their room has a tv, computer, radio, etc. Please take a look at THIS petition, this IDEA will work, and it make them play ball, because your taking away something they ENJOY! money they can always make, as I said, that 193K senators, 174K house reps, 223K leaders (John Boehner) is DINNER and SHOW. Its a wild night in Vegas. They DON'T care about their salary. But my proposal? they WILL care about.
