    Yep, lots to do
    See a few more lobbyists, have dinner with the big contributors, rack up more frequent-flyer miles at taxpayer expense. Get back to work and stay there until you pass a budget. If you don't pass the whole 2014 budget before October you shouldn't get a dime of salary for the whole year. Having the entire government run on continuing resolutions for 6 months every single year simply stinks. You're not doing your JOB. You shouldn't get PAID. In your spare time you can fix Social Security and Medicare and the defense budget. Hard job? Work somewhere else if you don't like it.

    Congressman, what's your position on this issue?
    I don't know. What SHOULD it be?
    Well, if you vote this way, these people give you money. If you vote that way, those people give you money.

    Personally I think they run whenever they can because they have no idea whatsoever how to climb out of the pit our country is sinking into, due to their bickering. Now they are hinting at a war with Syria? I cannot wait for election time.BYE BYE BYE!
