Let me get this straight. If they are not paying people (aka shutting the government, or parts thereof, down), do I have to keep paying taxes or should I expect some refund?

How about deducting our income taxes as a donation to a not-for-profit organization?
What about not paying the senators and reps while they pick out their pacifiers and rattles?
Seems fair to me.

I know where you live. Don't force me to bring a 197 and come ski with you. Working for a defense contractor, appears I might have time in the future to work on other activities as well.

The HOR and Senate have submitted several bills to the president that they agreed on, president shot them down becuase it excluded ACA. I say we impeach and get a new one that cares more about the people who make contributions than those who don't.

I say all working Americans opt out on taxes. All Americans have the choice to pay taxes and if we all don't pay, then nobody gets paid and they can't really do anything about it but correct the issues. Much more to it than that but just a general idea.

Taylor,

I'll be skiing on Lake Powell this Thanksgiving. Come on out for a week. Probably won't encounter too many toobers or surfers.

These politicians need to be fired. Then they will learn that they cannot just do whatever they want without regard for the people who live in this country. Fire everybody and start all over again. This congress needs an enima!
