What an astounding disappointment this Congress and specifically this House of Reps is! I have to assume they did not like the $200,000 - $250,000 line on tax increases as that is approximately what they make each year. So they fought for the $400,000 tax line and won but that's just not good enough. They need to attack benefits and entitlements – but let's keep pumping money into other countries and then allowing them to not repay us; let's continue to pump money into oil companies; and corporate farms and unfunded wars, but oh let's continue on with sequestration and cut program budgets in this country.

And of course let's give this do absolutely nothing congress a pay raise - shameful.
