These millionaire trust fund babies in Washington have no fucking idea how hard it is for people living paycheck to paycheck just trying to scrape up a few dollars to put in the gas tank to get to work to make a few more dollars to put back in the gas tank just to get to work again to make a few dollars to put back in the gas tank. It is HARD out here. Food prices are up. People can't even get work at Walmart! These retail places start hiring and they get HUNDREDS of applications...people with college degrees. Kids are graduating from college and can't even get a job in their field and if they do, the salary isn't enough to pay the student loans off. These universities are raising the tuition at astounding rates each year! The dollar can't stretch as far as it used to. Kids want more and the money just isn't there. People can't even take family vacations anymore at $4.00 a gallon gas. That's goddamned UNAMERICAN!

Hell yeah these politicians will SAY AND DO ANYTHING to get back to Washington just to do NOTHING.
