    no bull lady talks about average people loosing all their money – guess what average people earn hopfully 28 dollars an hour. congressmen say this is too much, take a pay cut. dont ask any of average people to have much sympathy for those that have lost million. we have lost everything job, credit, homes, medical ins and]
    the list goes on.

    @ Joe

    You know, even if that's true, the GOP has only itself to blame for having a bed that's cold and filled with people suffering from political ED. I don't know about you, but I find it hard to "perform" if I'm being yelled at with hateful nonsense.
