Shut down fat salaries

  • Follow Letters

Why is it that every time President Obama talks about the debt ceiling, your health care bill or shutting down the government, Obama and Vice President Joe Biden always use the scare tactic that the people who will be affected the most will be the military, those on Social Security and Medicare recipients?

Let’s try this: We hold back the pay of Obama and Biden, Michelle Obama’s
stipend (I wish I received a stipend that large), Obama’s staff’s pay and Congress’ pay, and see how fast this mess is fixed.

Oh, I forgot – this is George W. Bush’s fault.

May God save America. Some voters don’t have a clue what this country stands for.

Dennis,the leeches are

Dennis,
the leeches are allowed to vote in people that will pay them with working American's money. They are ignorant of how this country is supposed to function and frankly they don't care. They are not expected to contribute in any way, they have no responsibilities, and their liberal allies keep them addicted to small living as long as they get their votes.
The only way to change things is to get out and vote liberals and Democraps out.

"Some voters don’t have a clue what this country stands for."

I think I USED to know what it stood for but I ain't too damned sure anymore.

I'd hate to see the opinion letters AC turned down for this trash. And you people wonder why people are fleeing the area.

I'd rather think that I earned whatever money comes my way.

RichmanA2 - I gather that you feel it's

un-American to object to fat cat public serpents continuing to draw exorbitant salaries even while they lay off people who do the real "grunt" work needed to keep the country moving.

Am I correct?

And out of curiosity, just who are "you people"?

Well, bledsoe.....

"In my opinion, ANY GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEE who is unwilling to take a pay cut IS UNAMERICAN!!"

.
I take that to mean that you believe any private E-nothing soldier, sailor or Marine who doesn't volunteer to take a cut in his/her next to nothing wages is just another Benedict Arnold?

Maybe I misunderstood.
