Gimme gimme gimme! Listen to the liberal piggies squeal.

Tell Harry and Barry all they have to do is pass EITHER of the debt ceiling bills the Republican-controlled House responsibly PASSED and sent to them DAYS ago.

Don't blame Republicans. They did their job. Come on, Democrits. You could end this today if you really wanted to. Your piggies are calling.

West Virginia; a sparsely populated state, little in the way of a complex nor sophisticated economy, no large cities, a mostly rural population--very little of a modern economy exists in the state. Bluntly, in the new economy, for those areas of the U.S. lucky to have one, West Virginia has few to no dogs in the fight over a national budget nor the Federal deficit.

Both sides need to learn you have to give and take. The Dems only want to say it our way or no way and I do not agree with that even if I am a independent voter. But cuts are needed to the charging of debt on the federal government because it will be another tax increase to pay the bills.

According to an analysis of House disbursement records, from April 1, 2011, to March 31, 2012, there were eight Republicans and two Democrats who made up the top 10 Members using the service — Reps. Joe Heck (R-Nev.), Scott DesJarlais (R-Tenn.), Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.), Kenny Marchant (R-Texas), Bobby Schilling (R-Ill.), Brad Sherman (D-Calif.), Vicky Hartzler (R-Mo.), David McKinley (R-W.Va.), Frank Guinta (R-N.H.) and Todd Young (R-Ind.).

Those numbers include both the base reported costs as well as amendments to their initial reports. Almost 90 M

Of those 10, at least four of the Republicans — Heck, Schilling, McKinley and Guinta — ran, at least in part, on criticizing incumbents over their mailing practices.

During that period, Heck has spent an estimated $422,000, Schilling has racked up $318,000, McKinley has totaled $312,000, and Guinta has totaled ...........wonderwhy Mr McKinley doesn't know we know.......
