    This iReport is part of an assignment:
    The fiscal cliff: Messages to Washington

    It all starts at the top. Washington DC

    Congress need to cut all the perks they given their selves over the years and have the same benifit the rest of us are offered. 28 Amendment

    Could CNN figure out how much money Americans could save.

    Lobbyist should not be aloud. Politicians should get opinions from their people that voted for them, not big companies paying someone to speak for them

    When we stop feeding the poor, they'll actually will go look for work. But why should they if the Gov keep giving them money.

    I have a son 26 yrs old on SSI for ADHD and Bipolar. When he moved out SSI sent me a letter asking if I approved of new person in charge of his money. I said no, there's nothing wrong with him, re-evaluate him. Stop his SSI and let him work. SSI raised his payments and sent it directly to him. Now he can drink and party all the time while I pay for it and work my butt off.

    Ex wife was accidently shot by new husband. Charges dropped. Now he gets SSI for depression. Now he can drink and party all the time while I pay for it and work my butt off.

    I'm a single dad with a ten year old son. I'm not rich, but my bills are paid. I think I have it better than alot even though I have to wait to buy things.
