    Tell GOP REP. Jason Smith to keep his salary. If he wants to feel the pain of those furloughed, he should refuse to pay his mortgage, no car note, just default on all his bills. Then when he comes to his senses just pay those late fees. He should cease all non-essential spending like buying food refuse all medical care. I will then commend him for not making this laughable gesture.

    My only question to GOP leaders and their house speaker is why don't you bring cutting All congress senators pay until a resolution is reached. Why is this not bought on the house floor. Why should u guys get paid for putting American people's lives at risk. Don't just say it, do it.

    There are some interesting points at some point in this post but I do not know if they all center to heart. There exists some validity but I most certainly will take hold opinion until I look into it further. Very good article , thanks so we want a lot more! Added onto FeedBurner likewise
