1. Get all the slackers with ADHD, ADD, FMS & others off Social Security & Medicare/Medicaid. They can work. They just don’t want to.
2. Cut the lifelong benefits for members of the House & Senate. Just because they serve a few terms, shouldn’t entitle them to everything the general public can’t have. While we’re at it, term limits should be added. Just like any President or Governor, lets add limits so the lawyers who inhabit Congress for 40 years will have to do more with that law degree than just hang a diploma on the wall. I think 12 years should be enough.
3. Bring the servicemen & women home from Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan & God only knows where else. Cut the support for any nation who doesn’t cooperate in the search for terrorists. Like Pakistan. I don’t believe I can be convinced they didn’t know bin Laden was in their own backyard.
I’m so fed up with listening to everyone on the boob tube talking about how “compromise” has to be reached, but they won’t do it, I’m ready to scream. I sincerely hope all the elderly who suffer cuts in their entitled benefits remember who caused this. The same people the elderly voted into office, who strive so hard to protect the large corporations & the wealthy. When your IRA loses value & your mortgage rate goes up, be sure to thank your local GOP candidate.
If only I had the ear of someone who could do something. Living on the short end of the stick teaches you how not to blow money. Lessons all of the current members of government could stand to learn.
