Glad to see them going back to work and getting paid again.But, I am
NOT happy to see anyone get paid a dime for time they did not actually work.Perhaps they should be given an opportunity to work extra hours to earn
back the lost income, but this should NOT be a "paid vacation."Of course, I would like to see every member of Congress and the White House
get their pay canceled for every day after the statutory deadlines for budget
and appropriation approval if they are not done. Such incompetence and
arrogance in inexcusable!
Every one needs to face the consequences for their actions. Being responsible is
being mature. B.O. is going to have to come out of his room sometime. Why are
the elected getting payed to be immature.
You'd have to change the Constitution, then. which guarantees Congress and
President's pay. Founding fathers saw it as a need to insulate them from
undue political influences and coercion. Perhaps they did it too well? Obama needs to end his government shutdown. He's the top Leader.
He needs to lead, and quit dividing America. So arrogant to say "No"
negotiations. My way or highway. But media blames Republicans. Probably George Bush's fault, too!
Lots of pundits are blaming Boener for the govt shutdown. I see lots of blame
going around: a President that is spending like a drunken sailor and no budget
to guide any expenditures, a Senate that feels it's agenda is more
important than good sense spending, a house that has somewhat of a conscience,
but no plan, and I see a public that is lapping up all the entitlements they can
regardless of the consequence. I see park rangers throwing their perceived
weight around like as if they were needed, bureaucrats complaining of their
importance being laughed at because we can do without them.That reasoning
is what caused the revolutionary war. The Declaration of Independance stated
that when a government no longer represents the people it's time to throw
it off and find a better way. Now is the time to rein in these self serving
satraps and allow America to heal itself.
Be sure to remember and thank your local teahaudist for this shutdown, come
election day.Radio educations are so obvious in these comments.
