If aliens landed in our nations capitol today they would see a very privileged class ruling over a working class. I thought the people were supposed to be in charge in America not the politicians but look at what has happened, look at the pay and benefits the taxpayers provide for our congressional representatives and senators not to mention their staff. If after the aliens landed they stumbled upon a copy of our constitution and bill of rights they would surely come to the conclusion that these documents must of been written for a different country because we or some of us in this nation have kicked both documents to the curb along time ago to the absolute delight of our current leaders. If any good comes out of the disaster in Washington and the woefully inept leadership we are currently living under, please let it be a new awakening of the American people. We must stop letting our leaders divide and conquer us and take back the power they have acquired for themselves. I don't know about any of you, but I want to be free, over anything else I want to be free. I may screw up because I'm free to do so and then I will suffer the consequences but Id rather be free than to be coddled by an entrenched inept over compensated group of so called leaders. President Obama has spent the last week or so bashing Washington for being incompetent and not working together for the American people, is that the same Washington he wants to run my health care? be careful people. Be very careful in dolling out power to demigods. There is no more Mr Smith, how sad.
