Looks like obamas cloward/piven strategy of "collapsing the system" is going real well.

I personally think Congress should only make what the national average for wages is. The only way they get a raise is if the average goes up. If it goes down, well, pay cut time.

Actually the right in the house passed a bipartisian bill that overroad the executive order. Obama telling us we all need to pay more, while giving raises to Congress and Biden. It is shameful. I wonder how many people will notice that their paycheck is a little lighter thanks to the payroll tax increase?

Could we have a list of the spending cuts Bill Johnson wants for our district or does he just want everyone else in congress to cut their spending?
