The very fact that Congress is going to pay people for not working is by far the best indicator of just how totally stupid the Congress is, and most importantly just exactly WHY WE ARE IN THE $$$$$$ MESS THAT WE ARE IN RIGHT NOW!
Out in the real world when a layoff happens, people might get unemploiyment compensation IF they are off long enough and then only a small % of their normal paycheck.
Once again, it is Congress who puts themselves above the people who elected them to represent the voters.
It is time to impose a one-time term for all elected officials. Without having to find money to get relected, they should then have plenty of time to actually solve problems and become real leaders.
After that, they would have to go back where they came from and find a real job. They should receive a small pension for the few years that they served, but not the life time salary they have now. Put these poeple into Obamacare and see how long it takes them to fix that mess.
When companies who are responsible for making a profit are presented with a spending porposal, managers always demand to know how this expenditure will be paid for AND how much more profit will it add to the bottom line. In government, NOBODY is held responsible for making sure that income will match expenses. Oh we have book keepers who can kinda' tell us just how bad the red ink is, but they are not RESPONSIBLE.
Would you run your own household this way?
ISN'T curious how the government selectively picks items to inconvenience American's? and leaves themselves nice and snuggly with their paychecks, chauffeurs, armed body guards, perks of flying on government aircraft?
There has to be a law somewhere or passed which would prohibit government and elected officials to be exempt from laws they pass which govern the rest of America!
The wealthiest counties in America are located around Washington,DC.During the Depression many folks moved to the metro area because one institution was considered recession proof,DC.
You can see this in the wages paid to government workers,and even more in the wealth of the various supporting high tech,lobbyists,armed forces,and medical technology companies who bombard Congress with their spouses and relatives.
Test of the day.
Name 1 liberal politician who has held a job in the private sector?
When our Government plays games of who is right and who is wrong it hurts our entire Country.
When our Government spends more overseas than at home it fails our entire nation.
When our alleged leaders, the representatives of the Americans play pompous game Of "I want this But you cannot have this for I refuse to budge and alter my wants for the betterment of this country than our entire government Fails this nation and does so miserably and irresponsibly to ALL AMERICANS!
Maybe it is time to Impeach all in WA DC who we voted for and exchange them with Workers, Farmers and Humans!
if you don't work, you don't get paid. That is making more debt and I can't afford anymore debt.
