    It will be interesting to see if these guys are only for cutting spending on other people or not.

    They'd better, especially the people I will be voting for.

    If a public official wants my vote and the votes of responsible people, he'd better vote AGAINST any needless spending, ESPECIALLY in my own state or district.

    However, I'm afraid some may think it's more popular to "bring home the bacon." If MY congressman or one of my senators does that, HE'S FIRED!!!!!

    Cutting spending will NOT cost jobs overall; it will CREATE jobs-- the PRODUCTIVE jobs in the PRIVATE sector while eliminating the counterproductive "officers" who "harass our people and eat out their substance."

    As Obama would say, change takes time. No doubt that the majority of Republicans who get into office will do the same things Republicans Democrats have done for the past 30 years... spend more on their districts, submit more or the same amount of pork so their districts benefit, and spend to increase government involvement which keeps them in a job. Until there is a cap put on the # of times officals can hold elected office, until pork is culled and bills submitted stop benefitting specific congressmembers, and until the tax code itself is changed to reflect something like a flat tax - it's doubtful any behavior will change. It's encouraging to see Tea Party members and some elected officials basically say - "I don't care" about being re-elected, nothing much will change.

    The country is at a fundamental crossroad - do we become a welfare state, do we do nothing and change nothing, or do we go back to fiscal conservative, constitutional based small government. There's a lot of hot air about the welfare state, there's a lot of grouchy pissing and moaning about the "do nothing" and there's a grass roots movement pushing the fiscal conservative view. Until one gains ground over the other and is preferred, we're stuck with "do nothing" and the same old same old.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
