I realize that it costs an immense amount to run this country and all it's programs. Just once I would like to see what percentage (not amount) of the pols wages, perks, expense accounts and personnel total in our budget. We need to know what the percentage is, with all their medical and retirement benefits, too. That is the way they add our incomes. And, could we for once spend money at home instead of sending billions to other countries for their problems? We have problems, too.
And, while I'm thinking of it, Congress and the House still do not have to participate in Obamacare until 2014. If we have to accept it now, they should, too. My prescriptions and various other med costs have already doubled in some cases, and go up every time I refill them.
Affordable medical care for all my eye!
