President Obama is urging Congress to take up his proposal to cut through the
red tape that prevents so many homeowners from refinancing their mortgages and
saving hundreds of dollars each month. This is a problem confronting Americans
across the country. Millions of families who bought homes before the financial
crisis, and have been paying their bills on time every month since, are locked
in at the high interest rates of the past. Even though they have done everything
right, they can't refinance at today's rates, which are historically
low. If these folks were able to lower their rates, they'd have more money
in their pockets each month. That's good for their families, their local
communities, and the nation's economy. Former President Bill Clinton said
that the U.S. is already in a recession and urged Congress to extend all the tax
cuts set to expire at the end of the year. Clinton, like the president, blamed
much of the nation's economic woes on the foreign-debt crisis and politics.
As long as Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats are in Washington D C, no
one’s property or liberties are safe! Far better that you take the recess,
the longer the better!
Long recess for these career politicians goes right-along with their salaries,
pensions, and life-long medical coverage, they have voted for themselves.It's high time for a 2-term limit for Senators and 3-terms for
Congress, and no recess! Join the tea-party revolt. Throw all
poor nancy. Doesn't she know how irrelevant she is?A
"do-nothing" house is much preferable to the "do damage" house
of which she was speaker.
Igualmente,Let's just have one term for everybody. Obama is
more of a campaigner than president, and a waste of time and money.These positions are a service, and not a career.Another great
change would be getting rid of a "conflict of interest". People on the
dole should not be allowed to vote.
Re: "Congress shouldn't take nine weeks of recess"Hey
-- do us all a favor and take 9 months. EVERY time this liberal Congress steps
forward to "fix" something, it makes it worse than it was before.Wait 'til after the election, when liberals and their fellow
travelers are no longer in the majority -- then some things might actually get
