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?

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?

Grover said "in effect, raisng payroll taxes does not go against tax pledge."

Why do so many listen to a blue furry creature with somebodies hand up his wazoo?

Petition needing to be started nationwide, Congress shall enact no pay raise, nor any federal employee of any type til spending of grandchildrens inheritence of the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness STOPS!!!!

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.

We need $3 in cuts for every $4 in taxes. We got $1 in cuts for every $41 in taxes.

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

Its time to muzzle fools like bill johnson, and allow president obama to do what he knows is necessary to get this country running smooth again like it did in the clinton years
