I have no problem with gridlock at the federal level. Our government is not supposed to pass a lot of laws. It was designed to be difficult to make new laws.
Since then they have corrupted the crap out of the proccesses. Invention of the "two party system" screwed everything up. Parties should be illegal. Having pre-designated running mates is another screw up. VP is supposed to be the guy who comes in second for prez.
Just fixing those two things, and getting the elections away from the politicians would fix 99% of what's wrong. And legalize weed throughout the land too.

If you think being flat broke is such a great thing, quit working and see if you can get free healthcare. Something tells me you'll regret your decision.

Jealous and resentful of the poor in the US. Strange. Wonder if you wish your house got flooded and washed away so you could get some of that free FEMA money. You guys are really out to lunch

Well, my healthcare will be going up over $60 a month starting in January. I'm not happy paying over $4800 a year for health insurance when we were told our premiums wouldn't go up one dime. That $60 plus a month for my healthcare, doesn't include the monthly stipend of of $200 plus that I have to pay for Medicare for myself and my wife that Uncle Sam wants is in addition to my medicare supplemet.
.... Just sayin.....

Oh....one of my neighbors just told me his doctor told him they would not be covering his family any longer. The Doctor isn't going to be taking Medicare any longer. I'm just waiting for the shoe to drop on me and mine. Oh....just sayin.

Guess this "old, white guy" Republican voted for Romney just hoping that Obama-care would be repealed. Now my Government annuity and Social Security payment (take home pay) will be about $40 less per month than in 2012. Do you suppose I could ask for food stamps to pay for the $3.99 a gallon for milk or $3.29 for a loaf of bread, or the over $4.00 a gallon for high test fuel. I guess you could say I'm a bit concerned about how much longer I can afford to stay retired. Say, do you think there is an opening at Wall-Mart for a 71 yo greeter? Yeah, I'm gonna need that brochure.

Just want to say that the Vic HID lights I just purchased will probably the last thing I can afford to buy for my pretty new white XCT.

BTW Saddlebag has a great product ... even though I don't agree with his political view.

Enjoy the next four years folks...I'm not going to mention politics to my family, or any of my friends nor enemies. You all got what you wanted and now you will have to live with it. Trouble is, so will I. I'm done....off the

this is false. Members of Congress make $174 per year and DO pay social security and all other taxes. They also mostly have to maintain two residences one home, one in DC. If you want them to be paid less, you probably also want the cheapest heart surgeon you can get.

Good luck with that! Doesn't sound like "vision" to me....

“Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions. Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the ‘new, wonderful, good society’ which shall now be Rome’s, interpreted to mean: more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.” — Marcus Tullius Cicero
