Wages

Salary of retired US Presidents .............$450,000 FOR LIFE Salary of House/Senate members ..........$174,000 FOR LIFE Salary of Speaker of the House .............$223,500 FOR LIFE Salary of Majority/Minority Leaders ......$193,400 FOR LIFE

Average salary of a soldier DEPLOYED IN AFGHANISTAN - $38,000

Average income for seniors on SOCIAL SECURITY - $12,000

I think we found where the cuts should be made! If you agree... Pass it on!

Occupy Wallstreet should also be occupying Congress by bombarding them with the above information and a continued request for reduction in their benefits until the move in that direction. Their health insurance should match an average BlueCross policy, mine for a family of 4 is $2,000 per month with huge deductible and 20% copay, no vision or braces covered. Their pensions should not exist at all and their salaries are too high. If you agree with me, cut the above statistics and make this a focus of the campaign.

FUCK THE GOVERNMENT. It's filled with corruption and greed.

Vote Ron Paauul. The democrat and the repubs are scam artists. I'd say vote Kucinich but he's not running for president.
