I admire you personally, very much. However, please understand that you are honor bound to represent the opinions of your constituents. You must bow to the majority, or else you are violating the requisites of your job. According to OECD, the U.S. pays 24% of its total economy in taxes, (Thomas Hargrove, Scripps Howard News Service). Canadians pay 31%, British 34%, Germans 37%, French 42%. Please do what is best for the MAJORITY rather than succumb to peer pressure or big campaign contributors. To remain stuck in a rigid stance is to pander to the wealthiest at the expense of everyone else (the majority). It is more important to maintain social security and medicare benefits and to INCREASE TAXES ON THE WEALTHY . . . it just makes sense to raise taxes in this struggling economy; i.e., when our families struggle economically, sometimes we must bring in more money by getting a second job. The definition of representative is: "standing or acting for another, especially through delegated authority." YOU ARE DELEGATES. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR CONSTITUENTS.

      This man has been very disrespectful speaker. He promised a jobs plan and its just cuts. He doesn't want to help all Americans, just the rich! Get him out of Congress!

      To all elected officals,

      Please keep in mind that we the people voted you into office to work and do what is best for the American People, and that does mean the American People, (not foreigners, and illegals), and not what is best regarding your sick leave and extra benifits etc. We want the jobs back in the US and for you all to do what is best for the American Public. Cut spending and entitlements programs to the welfare etc and concentrate on balancing the budget and quit the bickering and fighting. No one cares if you are Republican or Democrat, just figure it out or get out and let someone else do it that can and will.
