Sen. Marco Rubio
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen

March 5, 2013

I have worked hard all my adult life and I don't mind paying my fair share of taxes, but this is really ridiculous. Americans should not have to sacrifice and tighten their belts anymore for something we did NOT create.

Why can't the republicans in the House get off "their A**es" and agree to close the loop holes for the wealthy which includes them?

We could get out of this mess if "they" Congress would stop giving themselves pay raises every time you turn around when I, as a federal employee, have not had one in 3 years and my pay is decreasing because now I have to pay 2% more payroll tax. I will lose even more money when I am sequestered for 22 days. If Congress would agree to pay their fair share in taxes by closing the loop holes for the wealthy(they can afford it and would not miss it); and if they stopped giving "entitlements" to people that have not worked for them nor "deserve" them, we would have more money.

Don't plan on cutting my "entitlements" that I have money "taken out" of my check every pay period for social security and medicare to cut your budget. I am "entitled" to what I have worked for. I was not asked if I wanted money taken out of my check to fund Social Security, it was done to me. So why should not I, who's paid into SS and medicare get what I worked and paid for? Why should people that have not contributed a dime to SS or medicare get it no questions asked? Not fair or right, but that's something Congress knows nothing about fairness or what's right.

I feel I speak for the majority of the American people that we are tired of the federal government (Congress) not "working" for us. We voted you in, We can vote you out. Start working!!!!
