The new plan is BS and I wrote the two senators and Jenkins as well as Boehner telling them what assholes liars congress is. What people need to remember any law they make, they can also undo in the future. They can't cut spending and haven't shown any honest effort to do so in the future, we know they can't keep promises. They know that we know and stand up and lie anyway. Spending can be cut, they just won't do what is best for the country, therefore they need to be removed.

Yes.... pretty much just all BS. Anything to keep the status quo in power and ensure more gridlock after the election.

I have come to the conclusion that this was done FOR the elections.
Everyone wants to be seen as 'compromising' over the issues. Maybe they'll get some of those undecided voters to go their way.
More politicians trying to get the most votes possible to stay on their gravy train.
That and SURPRISE! Federal workers get a pay raise in 2014.....
_________________________________________________________________________________________________
HONOLULU (Reuters) - President Barack Obama, as signaled earlier in the year, signed an executive order on Monday setting federal civilian and military pay rates for 2014, and including the first raise for civilian workers in four years.
Military and civilian employees will get a 1 percent raise in the new year, consistent with the level laid out in Obama's earlier budget proposal.
The order had to be signed before January 1 to allow federal agencies to update their pay systems for the new year.
Congress could have declined to authorize the increases on at least two occasions in recent months, including when lawmakers passed a two-year budget agreement earlier this month, but chose not to intervene.
Federal civilian workers have had their pay frozen for three years. Military employees have received a salary increase each year that Obama has been in office, the White House said.
Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the Democratic Whip in the House of Representatives, praised the move as a "modest but important step" against the background of an improving economy.
Revised figures last week showed economic growth in the United States was an annualized 4.1 percent in the third quarter, the strongest since the final three months of 2011.
"In the case of federal civilian employees ... given that these hardworking public servants have already contributed nearly $114 billion toward deficit reduction and some were furloughed as a result of the shutdown and the sequester, it is long overdue," Hoyer said.
Employee unions have praised the increase as a small first step toward relief for the mostly middle-class workers on the federal payroll.
Still, those workers continue to lose ground in real terms. The latest annual inflation rate for the United States was 1.2 percent for the 12 months ended November 2013. For calendar 2012 the rate was 2.1 percent.
All COPS are police officers, but not all police officers are COPS.

Of course it was done for the elections. :roll:

The status quo political establishment wants to protect their power and patrons, rather than solve the problem. :twisted:

And there is another reason for term limits, which won't happen on it's own.

We have term limits, but the voters lack the courage to implement them and vote. :shock:

We really can't with the two party system, vast amount of money and a system where the common folks don't even have a chance to run. Look at who gets in control, the connected families with wealth.

There is no doubt both political parties work together to prevent any outsiders from gaining power. :twisted:

I am getting tired of people who refuse to vote, complaining about the government. :evil:

Look at the percentage of people who can vote and the number of people who actually do vote. :twisted:

Sadly those citizens are to blame for this corrupt system we have today. :evil:
