    The fiscal cliff: Messages to Washington

    Simplify It

    No elected official in Washington DC gets paid until they balance the budget. No retirement, No insurance, No pay of any kind until they start making the hard decisions to get this country on track.
    Sacrificies must be made . . . look at the country like a family . . . Washington is the parents with the purse strings, the people are the dependents. ANY parent worth their soul would sacrifice for their dependents. The dependents eat first, get shoes and clothes first, get the blanket first while the parent freezes, starves and wears old shoes.
    If congress can not do a better job managing OUR money they need to leave or FIX it by making sure "their dependents" are taken care of BEFORE they put anything in their pockets! The ones that leave are only there for the money (shame on them) and the ones that stick it out are the quality people who want to take responsibility for state of the union. They would have my vote . . . Republican, Democrat, Green Party, Independent or any other party!
