I have a dream that one day our nation will pay those that do service for Americans will get what they earn, and not a penny more. But that will not happen when NO ONE CARES how much taxpayer money is spent or where it is spent. Guess who loves to spend freely with taxpayer money... YOU GOT IT! O and those in charge have run the tab right of the chart. So far off the chart and PAST the debt ceiling that they stopped changing the debt amount it has stayed the same for over 100 days even though they continue to spend WAY MORE THAN THEY RECEIVE! Liars are the norm and progressives push this agenda!

I think we should pay more government officials not to show up. Politicians too. Things would probably run much smoother.

Dave, you make a good case for minimum wage for Govt. bureaucrats with no skill or ability and able to show up (sometimes). Pards, your question; think knee pads.

Although the EPA has done some very good things, its idealistic hubris, unchecked by pusillanimous politicians, has inserted itself into areas which are counterproductive to a properly functioning economy. Its unquestioned power needs to br reined in immediately.

Great word, describes our reps to a tee--lacking courage or resolution, cowardly. Need I say more?

The EPA used to have ideals that bridged between environmental issues and common sense capitalism. Now it's just a bunch of pusillanimous ideologues. Someone's watching O'Reilly?
