I'm sure they have gotten there money in other ways..(not legal)..several years ago members were busted for insider trading, then there was CountryWide, And i'm sure other big companies have made there contributions .if they are so rich why are they receiving a paycheck? the President get almost a half a billion dollars a year. Everything is paid for by our taxes so everything he gets is free. Why get a paycheck... they should only be allowed one term of 4 years, pay for there own medical and dental, have a 401K like everyone else and when there 4 years is up they leave with nothing but the 401K.. They keep taking more and more from us but are not willing to give up anything.
Here are some ideas to fix the budget. Due away with the one term paid for life pension they have, Cut there pay in half. Make them pay for there medical and dental. Do away with foreign aid. its about time the world takes care of themselves. Stop bailing out Coorperate America (since they use the money for there pensions, cars, boats, planes and anything else to support there lifestyle,
Stop telling countries that owe us money that they do not have to pay it back. Drill here and leave the money here instead of overseas, Bring outsourced jobs back to the US (more jobs, more taxes). stop the over 5 hundred billion a year taking care of illegal's in this country.
just saved you about 2 to 3 trillion easily. but you have to get Coorperate America out of Washington. CAN'T FIX AMERICA IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO FIX WASHINGTON..
Why are the members of the Congress and Senate apparently exempt from making sacrifices to benefit the effort to bring down the deficit? I have not heard any one of these people suggest that they take a pay cut? If they were truely concerned with the deficit and the people they serve, one would think they would have done this already.
It is not like they work really hard for their salaries. Maybe they should be paid by merit points. When they spend their time governing, they would be paid. When they are spending their time working on their next re-election, that should be on their own time.
I am fed up with these people telling the people in the middle class that they need to make more sacrifices, and the poor and elderly need to be cut off from their entitlements. Since our was supposed to be a trickle down economy, there is a way to actually see some trickle down.
Lots of ways to hide money ..... come speak for an hr we will give you 150000
Of the top dozen, 9 are democrats and only 3 are Republicans. So much for the lies, regarding the rich, uncaring Republicans vs. the democrats looking out for the middle class.
The democrats, in Congress, are huge believers in capitalism! They simply don't support their constituents believing in capitalism.
They want their constituents to rely on their elected officials to take care of them. That's how the rich democrats stay in office and keep getting richer...

[BRIEFING.COM] At midday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (+0.2%), Nasdaq (+0.3%), and S&P 500 (+0.1%) hold slim gains, while the Russell 2000 (+0.6%) outperforms.
Like yesterday, the overnight session was free of any broad developments, which allowed the focus to turn toward the next batch of earnings in the U.S. In general, most of the reports received since yesterday's closing bell have surpassed expectations, but there were a few noteworthy disappointments too.
