    Enact a $2 billion tax cut for the super rich.  That's how the GOP "pays" for everything, and has since the days of Ronald Reagan.

      Take away ALL the perks from the right,they get $40,000 for office furniture,cable all printing,chartered planes for the and their family's and their family's can charter private planes for their use.  There salary is totally free.  Free cable,travel expenses,staff postage.  Go online and see what the govt. Reimburses these jackasses for.  They pay for nothing.  Now they want to deny Veterans who sacrificed so much while these jerks piddle away our money.  They should be hung by their balls and left on public display in the Smithsonian under "worthless government officials".  They find money for unnecessary wars,tax breaks to the wealthy, they give themselves automatic pay raises yearly,and have witch hunt never ending committees that never bring results.  This is a no brainer!  Devils in good suits is all they are.  May they rot from the inside out while still living.  Never has our country hemmed and hawed over Veterans benefits like these jokers.  When people like Alan West receives a pension and truly injured Vets may be screwed out of care something sure is rotten in Washington.  It's called The Republican Party and the need to become extinct.
