I don't understand why we allow these ideas to be laughed at by our Washington elite and we as Tax Payers simply shrug our shoulders and walk away thinking there's nothing we can do? The Washington elite work for us, and yet we act as if we work for them and every day that passes we relinquish more of our freedoms to these FEW people. These are notrecommendations or suggestions these are demands by the American people. No one "recommends" that you balance your check book its common sense. Why allow the Washington elite to behave at a different standard?
