      A few months ago, there was some talk from various circles around the world, about not continuing with the dollar as the world's reserve currency. How would NOT raising the debt ceiling effect that conversation? What would it mean to the U.S. to lose the status of reserve currency? Thanks for your time.

      Why is it exactly that we continue to pay those serving in congress after their term is over? And all these White House appointed officials who seem to work only for a year or so then leave, do we continue to pay them as well? What will it take to change that huge expense?

      I have been watching things go up and down for months now and all I can think and want to ask is how much is one paycheck for a member of the House? Is it double, triple, or maybe more than the middle class pay rate? And if so, why not cut their paychecks and move them into middle class houses and not houses that run with outstanding figures. Or the cars that they drive?? How about the 3 or 4 hundred thousand in the old bank account? Is that the safety that Americans voted you in for?? I think not.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
