    Harry Reid WON'T DELIVER. He refuses to bring anything to a vote. Catholic Chaplains cannot provide services to the Military.

    Reid is a natural born idiot and so are all the politicans in our government.They are all on vacations 95% of the time and do nothing when they are there.All of them should be fired for doing the crumiest job ever.If they worked for a big company they would not last 5 seconds,especially if I were the boss.They are all TRAITORS to the people of the USA.Jim Thomas Phx.

    if all of them in congress were SOOOOO anxious to find ways to lower the cost of government....why do they continue to make high salaries the tax payers can't afford or even want paid to them.....have government paid chauffers to drive them around, and have cars paid for by the government and all is paid by tax payer monies. That's not even counting the cost in airfare and private planes that they pay for from tax payer money. And, I don't see them laying off their aides and secretaries who also get well paid to save any money while they shut down everyone else's pay.

    What in the hell do democrats get out of negotiations?? Obamacare is off the table, but if their is negotiations on dept ceiling it's not a gift to democrats to just pay bills but things like sequestration has to be eased, transportation bill passed, tax reformation.....sum of the presidents agenda has to be advanced. For the last couple of years republicans have gutted a lot of programs and the DEPT IS GOING DOWN!!!!!! Now it's time for democrats to get things out of deals.

      Deficits have slightly improved but our National Debt is skyrocketing to bankrupt our United States. We are printing fake money and buying stock with it. The People are getting nothing. And Catholic Chaplains in the Military are not allowed to have religious services or face JAIL. Democrats are like little children in a candy store spending other people's money.

    In responce to Harry Reid: The true reality is that neither you nor the rest of our representatives have accomplished anything in Washington for the last four years. While the rest of working American go to work each day and meet or exceed our daily goals, none of you have. I have a budget, do you? I can help. One single rule, stop spending more then what you are taking in. Set aside a surplus for a rainy day. Really no more complicated than that. All of you a failures in our eyes. I can only hope that voting Americans wake up, boot you all out and set term limits on anyone serving in Washington in any capacity.
