    Pathetic? Not really, unless you consider welfare, food stamps, unemployment compensation, and medicade bad.

    An overview of what sequestration actually is:

    About a 2 and 1/2 minute read.
    There are also links to related articles.

    luckily my 50 million dollar podium (thoughtfully provided by, but unbeknownst to, my constituents) doubles as a flotation device

    If they had the courage of their convictions they would would make any pay raise a stand alone bill. I think they voted to freeze their pay THIS year, but federal workers are going on three years without one.

    The national debt was $9.6 trillion on this date in 2008. It is $16.7 trillion today. Can you say “wild, out of control spending”?

    They would let this country go over the “fiscal cliff” before they would touch the $174,000 salaries and free haircuts from a shop that has gone into debt of $350,000 each year for 15 years. How many months of vacation do they get a year?

    Libtards vrs Trolls, divide and conquer, meanwhile they party on in Washington driving our great country to ruin. We got to wake up people, we can not fight amongst ourselves. We must stand together and fight those who have led us into this mess over decades. Career politicians, both Dems and Repubicans have made this mess. Term limits! Make them a part of our system of Medicare and social security. Ah-eee! So much to do but we must start today.

    Corrupt party? Is it not your own party that is in the back pockets of insanely-rich corporations?
    Our GOP governor here in Pennsylvania, Tom Corbett, is called “Tom Corrupt” because of his open corruptness.
    He didn’t prosecute Jerry Sandusky while Corbett was attorney general because Sandusky’s charity was writing six-figure campaign contributions to Corbett.
    Corbett also is in the back pockets of natural gas drillers here in PA, whom he is giving a free ride.
    Corbett is also cutting a billion dollars from education, too. He also wants to throw 5,000 Pennsylvanians out of work by selling our state-owned/operated liquor stores, selling our state’s largest cash cow to his well-heeled friends.
    He also tried to sell our lottery system to a foreign corporation, too.
    And you call Democrats corrupt??

    Congress is pathetic. Soon they would gladly give the President Line Item Veto so they will not be responsible anymore for the budget going against what the founding fathers wanted.

    If they came up with an Amendment saying 12 or 16 years for Line Item at this point I might go for it, but that is a change to the country I don’t want.

    “Also exempt from sequestration are congressional salaries.”

    What a surprise!

    There WAS a time when congress voted themselves raises every year, but they got a backlash from the general public every time. Congress gat tired of hearring from their constituants on this, so they changed the law (about 25 +/- years ago) so the raises are automatic unless congress votes otherwise.
