    I heard a kick into thine own butt seems to help.

    I hope the President will consider utilizing the following:

    Congress gets a decrease in pay until it's approval rate goes up. Their pay will return to original level each day it goes up

    I believe they are wasting our taxes by wasting their time in congress!  Until they are compromising, their pay should be reduced so we can save money.  

    This should reduce the motivation to use the filibuster too.

    This might force the congress to do the people's will instead of practicing politics.

    Hope the president make an executive order for the above.

      of difference.  Congress critters are, at majority, millionaires who do not depend on that paycheck to make ends meet.

      One we fall off the cliff, paradoxically, Democratic bargaining position improves.

      I say we mint those platinum coins and let them topple us over.  They are at a 26 percent approval rating, which has now broken the unbreakable 27 percent of the nation that are straight up right wing nutters.
