I think our politicians need to take a vacation from spending our taxes. Herb

No Herb, i dint, i think that we need to vote some of them out of office and let them know that the people run the government not them, seems to me that after they get in they seem to think they know what we need and dint listen to us.

As i have said before it is just my two cents worth.
you-all have a great day.

They were all elected to work for us, and to represent their districts, not to enrich themselves. KIck them out, and put some good people in there to do the job properly.

That is my two cents. Today two cents doesn't buy very much.

Taking one day at a time!!

U.S. NATIONAL DEBT CLOCK

The Outstanding Public Debt as of 19 Oct 2008 at 12:39:38 AM GMT is:
$ 1 0 , 3 3 8 , 4 1 4 , 2 3 0 , 5 7 8 . 3 2
[/color][/u]
The estimated population of the United States is 304,933,126
so each citizen's share of this debt is $33,903.87.

The National Debt has continued to increase an average of
$3.45 billion per day since September 28, 2007!
Concerned? Then tell Congress and the White House!

      Do you have any questions about the National Debt or this Debt Clock?
      Here are some answers. The Treasury Department's Bureau of Public Debt also has their own Public Debt FAQ.

Herb, that is one of the main reasons that everyone and i mean everyone that is eligleble to vote need to do it and throw those big spenders out and keep doing it until they get the message that it has to stop.
you-all have a great day.
