    Actually the Dems took control of the senate and congress in January 2007. Pelosi and Reid have been leading both sides of the isle since 2007 so lets give them full credit for four years and not just two.

    Yes, but Bush and the so called republicans didn't help either. They went along with the fiscal irresponsibility so they are just as guilty. Don't get me wrong I voted for Bush but in this last election I voted for Reps, Dems, and Independents depending on their views and fiscal awareness. Imagine what would happen to you if you wrote checks that you didn't have the money to cover. No we need term limits, no retirement for 6-8 years of government SERVICE, no congressional heath care that is different from what they just passed, and no raises or perks. It should be regular people and not a career. And if you or your spouse's net worth is over 1 million dollars you are disqualified from office....once you hit that mark you are out. Can you say special election?

  • Gosh Trouble, your profile pic is, well....troubling! Aside from that, I do believe that our constitution states that congress will not pass or enact any law that they themselves don't have to abide by. If our elected officials gave up all perks, including travel, accommodations, meals, parties, clothes, bar tabs, housing, communications, bribes (oops, did I say that out loud?)etc., can you imagine who would be left to actually want to run????

    Yes honest people that want to serve their country for other reasons than to get rich and the kickbacks.
