If the Republican led congress is so focused on debt reduction, why are they not proposing equal cuts in their own entitlements such as their own medical coverage? If they want people to take them seriously, they should be willing to give up all of their benefits and live like the people they don't beleive deserve benefits.
Why should tax payers foot the bill when they are getting paid so well and getting help from their rich backers? Why not demand that their medical benefits be privatized like they want to do with ours? If they have soooo much faith in our current economic system, then why not show it.
The truth is that they are basically inside traders. They are perfectly content to suggest that others place their money in the market because they know the real situation and can take advantage of it. They understand how rotten the system has become and make money off of the system through getting us to place our money there. They help their buddies make money, which returns to them in political support, or worse, in pay offs.
An additional thought. Why are there still so many Republican candidates in the race for President especially when a number clearly have little or no chance of being nominated (Rick Santorim - sorry for misspell). Well, gee, people are paying your campaign millions of dollars to fly around the country making a fool out of yourself. They are paying for your food, air fair, and lodging. You get a big ego rush doing speeches and being paid. Talk about money for nothing. Hell, for the active government officials it is a vacation from their real job. For the inactive people, it is free money.
