    Wow – They actually worked together and got something done.

    We still need the details – But, let's all hope that it's in the best interests of the American people that they're supposed to represent.

    Maybe this will be a good start. Because Americans still need our elected leaders from both parties to start working together on actually trying to fix the real problems in our country like outsourcing, illegal immigration, the out of control costs of health care insurance and our reliance on foreign fuel.

    Fix them together as Americans! – Because united we'll stand, but divided we'll fall.

    Now if our leaders would really start making decisions based on the fact that they are elected by the Citizens of the United States of America to represent the best interests of those citizens and the country itself, we'd all be better off.

    The American people just need them start remembering that they are NOT elected to represent the Global Market Place, lobbyists or foreign citizens!

      The extended unemployment benefits need to be renewed. We need to make smart cuts, but massive cutting just puts more people on unemployment, which just depresses the economy even further.

      Let's face it – Over the last 2-3 decades both parties have been selling out the bulk of the American citizens, who they're supposed to represent, by allowing the incursion of illegal aliens (cheap labor) and the "out-sourcing" floodgates to open wider and wider without taking any sensible measures to stem the tide.

      Our economic problems didn't happen overnight. It's been happening over the past 15-20 years, but the economy was kept going by middle class Americans tapping into the equity on their homes until they were completely tapped out.

      Returning private sector jobs to American Citizens will provide income tax revenue to OUR Government versus our government having to pay unemployment benefits to those who would be jobless instead. We need our elected officials to Start Protecting American Jobs and do whatever it takes to bring back the jobs they let go. We need leaders who will actually stand up for the American people.

      The ONLY REAL FIX for our great country is to Raise Revenue, by Bringing Back Jobs to US Citizens who Pay Income Tax.

      The bottom line is that “Our Government” has to protect domestic industry and the jobs that those industries provide. If they do that, the rest will take care of itself.
