Republicans stonewalled the democrats in congress when Obama pushed to extend benefits for unemployed workers. The Republicans offered no recourse for those unemployed from good paying jobs. The Republicans were holding out until the unemployed caved in having to feed themselves, families, children. The Republicans have no idea or plan to provide for america but do plan for their own increase of wealth at the suffering,, misery and eventual death of those citizens that have trusted these same Republicans to provide for them. This is how the system works but you will fail to find any politician, Republican or Democrat offering a decrease in their pay or benefits which they set based on the taxes we pay for their well being. Why pay for their well being when they fail the well being of America. As long as any american is wanting to work should be provided with a job that pays a salary that at minimum will pay for all necessities and benefits required to support them. As long as any politician fails in meeting this basic need they have no right to any salary, benefits or retirement. Their job is to serve the law abiding people that look to these officials for answers to these basic problems. Now that the House has changed from Democrat to Republican I do fear the Republicans and the measures they will pursue at any cost to any american citizen just so long as it is not they who will suffer. Waiting to see how this unfolds and how many more will suffer or die. Reminds me much of the Nazi of WWII where the methods are now different but the result is the same. Be realistic with yourself and follow the course the Republicans pursue to its end.
PS Democrats nor Obama are not the answer.
