    Lets start a grass roots movement. If the goverment shuts down, we will say, okay. However, "We the poeple" will not be required to pay sales tax, property tax, and income tax, for each day the goverment is shut down. Moreover, how come no body ever suggests a cut in congressmens' wages? They make far more with the perks that come with the job-but, it's a start.

    I do not like Obama Care.
    I do not like it anywhere.
    I do not want it in my life.
    I do not want it for my wife.
    I want it taken away right now,
    I do not want it anyhow!

    You stood your ground and made a case.
    You read from Seuss and held your space.
    But I have found a mistake you made
    for Seuss' efforts were to persuade,
    our little ones to sprout new wings,
    and try to experience many new things.
    So I suggest you calmly rest.
    You've gotten so much off your chest.
    Now take a chair and serenely sit.
    Obama Care? You might end up LIKING IT!

    This morning you finally did about 60 seconds on explaining Obamacare. It is your DUTY to do so. This is one of the most important issues of our time. Americans need to know what the Affordable Health Care LAW is all about and what they need to do about it. The requirements are so simple and the idiocracy is speeding such lies about it that you must devote more time to it. This law is so important to those who need its protection.

    The sign up period starts soon and you have to explain the simple steps needed. If you did your job, the polls about Obamacare would change overnight.
