    • On December 03, 2008, by Anonymous - First of all $1. a day in some place of the world is enough to live on, we have people in America hungry and more every day. Charity starts at home. If we can take care of ourselves then go out. Americans are the most generous people in the world and we do not need a law taking our money to give to others. Let us do this on our own. NO, vote NO to this.

    • On August 23, 2008, by rickvic - Let Nancy save the planet, by herself. Congress is elected to serve the American people. This bill is above BHO's pay scale. Put it to a vote of the people, so congress can see what mainstream American's think of how congress spends our money. Perhaps if more people are aware of what they are up to they would get voted out. USN Vietnam Vet
