    I do not accept the morality of government cutting back on our "entitltments" while leaving theirs intact, fully funded. Congress is telling us that we might have to work a few years longer before being eligible for our benefits. Is anyone suggestiong that government workers work a few extra years? No. HELL NO! Sacrifice is for you, not them. They are preparing to raid the package that we have spent all our lives funding and giving up nothing themselves.

    To force us to give even more, while they do nothing but take is immoral.

    To the feds: If you want entitlement reform, start with your own. Not because it will solve the debt problem, but because its the right thing to do.

    It's time to lead.

    Start with term limits!! (even if you would change their "entitlements" they will get enough via the "lobby" circuit.!!!)

    Although our Founding Fathers saw fit to apply a certain amount of time for Congressmen,they did not feel the need to add term limits. Maybe they never envisioned a need for career politicians or even it considered it all.
