    It will be refreshing for congress to take a break from taxing us and spending it.

    Sooner or later the American people are going to wake up and see that congress is playing them for fools. Make every decision a crisis and then stick it to the taxpayer because they had to save the world from doom.

    This is the GOP's baby. ..... they rejected (thanks to Congressional members that belong to that extremist group) the deal the President and Rep. Boehner that had $1T in cuts.

    This is the job of congress. To tax us and spend the money in the best interests of the people. It cracks me up when people claim the democrats are "tax and spenders" when that is what the government is supposed to do. The problem is that it the government doesn't always spend our tax money in our best best interest.

    Just cut their pay by 75%. That should fund everything else.

    The question to ask the rigjht wingnuts is, "You do know that under President Obama, the tax rates are the lowest in 50 years, don't you?" Its all part of that stimulus you hate.
