Pay freeze? There will be no freezing, it will be checks bouncing. People that are still required to work will get IOUs instead of money.Do it, Don't back down, plenty of money to cut. How about they go on a pay freeze until they figure it out? No more vacations, no more weekends off. This isn't a freaking game. Sit there like grown people and figure it out.
And going off of what someone said today.
"We have to find a way to pay for it all"
We don't have to find a way to pay for it all, we have to find a way for you to stop spending it all and then some. Were not an unlimited credit card with no interest. Your limit is maxed out and your behind on the payment. JUST STOP SPENDING ON STUPID STUFF AND THIS WILL ALL BE OVER WITH.
Give the small business's of this great country a chance. We can't all work for the government, it won't work.
I am saying that both Republican and Democrat parties responsible for the budget need to go on a pay freeze until this is resolved, stop taking time off. 2 weeks off for Easter, talk about not ever working. Pbeaul we agree on most of this.Pay freeze? There will be no freezing, it will be checks bouncing. People that are still required to work will get IOUs instead of money.
The problem is that the only thing both parties care about is politics... Who's going to benefit from this crisis the most. Neither party cares about actually solving anything, they just want to play political football and make it seem like they are actually doing something constructive.
At some point, everyone is going to have to face the facts, you don't solve trillion dollar deficits by slashing 30 - 50 million dollar programs while leaving the 700 billion programs alone. You can't fund 2.1 wars abroad while axing all the socially beneficial program. You either have to start doing something about the big 3 (Military, Social security and Medicare/aid) and/or you raise taxes (i.e. stop giving tax breaks to the rich).
