The current mess in Washington is unacceptable and must change. Never before have I seen a Congress that cared less about what voters think or want.

The upcoming cuts will place millions at risk when health care, police, teachers and safety personnel are cut. Does the tea party have a conscience? I hope they remember that their families will also be impacted as well as us.

During all the reports of doom and cuts to the military, safety services and the TSA I have heard nothing regarding cuts to congressional salaries, staff or expense accounts. I think this should be part of the package so that we all share in this doomsday crisis.

Every voter should contact their representatives and senators and demand this issue be resolved quickly and stop the infighting. Make balanced cuts, but remember to raise taxes on the wealthy to a fair level with the rest of the taxpayers.
