    Michele Bachmann and Alan West are right: we need to stop our military from being used as a political pawn in these ridiculous budget debates.

    Our military pay should be automatic.

    The CONGRESS pay should be tied to the budget debate.

    This entire debate is ridiculous.

    The Dems are saying they want to keep spending at such an outrageous level so they can destroy America and remove all our freedoms.

    The GOP says no, we DON’T want to destroy America we want to get on a path to prosperity and opportunity.

    Why are the Dems even in this debate?

    They make no sense.

    Why do we “give in” to people whose goal is to destroy us?

    Why are they in our highest political offices?

    This is so entirely messed up.
