If We Cannot Pay Our Debts, How Can We Afford To Pay Congressional Salaries?

Republicans in contend that government is too big and must be slashed until it is “small enough to drown in a bathtub“.  Since those same Republicans cannot seem to say yes to any budget proposed by the President, perhaps the first cut in the federal budget should be their salaries.  After all, these are the people who are telling us that we must make sacrifices.

We need leadership, not brinksmanship.  This is a very dangerous game of chicken that the Republicans are playing with our economy.

Apparently the “tea party” has the Republicans in Congress afraid to agree with Obama on anything or any aspect of anything he proposes.   They threaten to oust them in a primary if they vote yes.

Congress has gotten beyond being dysfunctional.  What they are doing now is nothing short of malfeasance.

  1. Couldn’t agree more, the current stand off puts so much at risk, they’re just point scoring. The trouble is, it’s the future of our economy they’re gambling with here.
