It looks like we have elected the village idiots to represent us. I am not talking about any party. They both are well represented..........:(

It's like watching paint dry. I wish the cameras would back up some and show us if there is anyone in attendance in the chamber. The chairs for 2 rows behind the one who is speaking are always empty.

The camera never moves to catch any response from attendees which makes me think no one is there.

If a few more people would just watch what goes on in Washington there would be NO one that is not STUPID or Blind to see that the common man has no voice in our government. We need to get those clowns out . I plan on in 2010 to vote straight across the board AGAINST any incumbent regard less of party affiliation. There needs to be NO new spending until our country's debt is paid. A single page reform of the income tax to read all people, businesses, or any living breathing thing pays a straight 12.5% tax. Just think the Federal Government will shrink a bunch with the downsizing of just that one phase of government. The EPA just needs to be abolished. Nature will take care of the Earth a whole lot better than a bunch of crooks. All those bail outs should be due and payable by 1 January 2011. NO exceptions for any one that has taken money out of the normal working tax paying Americans pockets. I know these things are radical by some peoples beliefs but as far as I am concerned THE ONLY WAY YOU SHOULD GET ANY THING IS BY WORKING FOR IT.

As good a plan as any.

Many voters are one issue, guns, abortion, "R," "D," global warming, etc. Anti incumbent works for me.

I hope your incumbents disagree with me on every issue. Maybe those that replace them will agree.

Good Luck whatever you eventually do.

I watched a little today trying to vote for the bill would increase the level that is approved by congress. The bill passed with more pork than a Iowa pig farm. The Replican senator from Arizona his fellow members of the Senate that President Obama promised to go line by line and veto any bills that he did not favor.
