    Default Bail out??

    Here is a fair question.
    If the Feds think top executives pay should be cut in these comoanies that received a bail out because they were going bankrupt, using there own logic, we should cut their pay!

    The US Govt is in deep debt headed towards bankruptcy and they come to US, the taxpayers, over and over again to "bail them out!"

    It's time they took a cut in pay and benefits, just like they have forced upon us!!

    Too bad they won't give us the power to vote on their pay, instead of them deciding their pay scales/raises. Wonder if that would change things? These positions Should be about serving the people(their employers), not being an elitist, with very modest middle class (or lower) pay & benefits, peroid. They say the low & middle classes are the heart of American, so why should they not live like those classes too?

    Hopefully the revolt will happen at the 2010 voting polls, by sending most of them home with the message that we'll not take this anymore.

    RK, according to your logic, would China be deciding the pay rate of our government employees you speak of?

    Who exactly will we replace those in congress with, that we want to toss out next election? I assume you're running? The slates of candidates are already being formed. Are they any different? I think not. Bumping up the councilman to Mayor, the Mayor to Governor, the Governor to US Senate, the Senator to Presidential candidate, will that give us anything different?
    Term limits sound good, but replacing the experienced with the novice may not serve us any better.

    I don't know how you got that interpretation. What I said was who are you going to replace them with? Some other politicians? How will that be a revolt?

    PS Stan, I didn't vote for Obama. I always vote third party if I have an option. Dems and repubs seem much the same to me. Dems a little less distasteful.

    By voting out a good amount of current members will send a strong message to them all.
