    What's the use of a sequester if your gonna keep pushing it back. We have to get in a room and come with a solution or we all suffer the consequences due to how our government is run now. Maybe in future some people will learn to stop being so political and to do their job because it has consequences. President needs to beat them over the head to come up with solution or sequestre will happen.

    We are all living in these days of financial crisis were some of the same people who supported him have probably lost their jobs, their homes and even their families. This act was disgustfully premeditated and both husband and wife should be made an example of. No more of the "BS" Bernie Madoff home arrest do to health issues; jail time and lots of it couldn't be most appropiate. It is ENOUGH of scandals, unapropiated and abuse of funds by political figures elected by the people and for the people.
