    Do you really think giving up $174,000 will affect people who own $8 million boats, and 12 houses??

    Sounds good, but won't make a lick of difference in their stupidity and greed.

    I agree Dave, I don't think that would affect Nancy Pelosi, the Clintons, Soros, Michael Moore or Al Gore one bit!!!

    If the Republicans would take out their demand for planned parenthood there would be an agreement.

    Democrats have painted the conflict as one solely over the abortion issue, arguing that Republicans refuse to drop their push to scrap funding for Planned Parenthood even at risk of a shutdown.
    Boehner disputed that Friday morning.
    “There is only one reason that we do not have an agreement as yet and that issue is spending,” Boehner told the press in brief remarks.
    Reid told reporters earlier Friday that the dispute over depth of the spending reductions has been resolved and that he and Boehner have agreed on $38 billion in cuts.
    The impasse solely hinges on government funding for health centers that include Planned Parenthood, an abortion provider, Reid said.

    I'm sure losing his paycheck wouldn't bother his lifestyle one bit I just dont think you should ask the American people to do something you wouldn't do. Its easy to sit and say Just shut it down when it doesn't affect them at all. Maybe they would work harder at finding a soluition if it was their check not going in the bank.

    The young, hard-charging Marine enlisted man fighting for his country somewhere overseas probably has a wife with kids living on a base somewhere stateside who now won't be able to buy food for her family thanks to the Vacation President. Hell, with the surge in oil prices today (again thanks to President F U and the Chairsatan of the Federal Reserve) she probably couldn't afford to drive to the grocery store anyway.

    We live in Cuba now.

    Just knowing that the wife of a military man fighting overseas has to use food stamps to buy groceries for her family makes me cry. And our President dines on kobe beef every week.

    Bring them all home.
