poorly worded question.

That's what I'm guessing too but I live in liberal Illinois so I won't be surprised if the teacher thinks it's not poorly worded but intentionally believes it.

ahahah.

he just did a Mea Culpe' and said its Millions

17 years ago, it was only a partial shut down anyway.

^_^;):P

Did they mention how much it is costing just to prepare for the shutdown, even if it doesn't happen?

That is in the millions also.

Just pissed me off that nowhere do they talk about freezing their own income yet they will undercut everyone else....

Actually, they blocked their automatic pay raises in 2010 and 2011.

Not a big deal for most of them given their salary isn't there main source of income.

Zing! :D

I say we get them all out of office and then cap their salary at 100k. Then they have to have the same healthcare as the public (Senate voted no on this one). Also they only get paid for when they are at the office or on official business (that is the tough part).

If you haven't noticed they spend their time raising money for their next election, not making our country better.

Exactly. There should be a campaign spending cap and a limited time to run. Currently they don't represent the voters, they represent the top doners to their campaign.

That money can be better spent somewhere else.

Congress still gets paid, but their staff don't.

I blame us for allowing both parties to continue to spend with such profligacy that the true economic reality is going to come crashing down much sooner than the oceans rise up and drown the Eastern seaboard. Maybe climate change is just the Earth's way of wiping them all out. ;)

i think it was congressman Heinz who said it recently, or something close.

at some point the Pres/house/sen will be flipped flopped.

and that the DEMS should refuse to sign/go along with/agree to anything until all ASSULT WEAPONS are banned. i LOL'ed so hard and how brilliant that is.

Only problem is, they're liberals and liberals don't act that way. They lack the testicular fortitude to stand their ground as a group on that particular issue.

And that's the opinion of a fellow independent Mike. ;)
