Quote from this article, "But since one poll shows that the idea
of a communist takeover is more popular with the public than the Republicans, it
might be best not to take a chance."I'll be laughing the
rest of the day after reading that. Thank you!
I don't think they're motivated, or held hostage by, their pay.
Saying the senate is controlled by democrats is an outright lie. If the
democrats really controlled congress we wouldn't be having these fights
No budget, no congressional pay. I could support that with one caveat.Neither the house or senate members get paid without a passed budget.Maybe then, the house Republicans would pass a budget that was not completely
partisan.Remember, the Ryan budget passed the house without a single
Democrat vote.It really is worthless to pass a house version of a
budget knowing that it will never be approved in the senate.This is
where compromise comes in
It's just another Congressional attention getting device.Like a
hungry baby crying in the middle of the night.
Agreed, it may not.Besides, theyre not hurting.And
they'll just get easy bridge loans from the banks they bailed out.But I hear fantastic suggestion on KSL's Doug Wright show the other
morning -- Why not withhold the paychecks of all those Congressional
member's STAFFS !Their Secretaries, Office Admin, Page members,
Political Advisers, runners, etc., etc.100% Constitutional, 1,000% more effective.
