Alan Simpson Warns of the “Denizens of Darkness”

Though the bi-partisan deficit commission didn't have the 14 votes necessary for their recommendations to automatically go before Congress, it seems likely many of the proposals will still go forward as tentative legislation.

However, Alan Simpson, co-Chair of the commission and former Wyoming Senator, warned legislators of piecemeal application of the plan:

And, continuing in his characteristically “colorful” way, he urged members not to be swayed by the “zealots” who have “fired up their artillery,”:

However, he says a plan shaped by the “denizens of darkness”:

Wyoming Senator Mike Enzi, says “he appreciates the tough recommendations put forward by the commission” and says
“the nation needs to consider all options to reduce the deficit.”

On the other hand,Wyoming's Congresswoman, Cynthia Lummis, does not support the Commission's proposal, and says she prefers another plan that is sponsored by Representative Paul Ryan, a Republican from Wisconsin.

I, for one am sick of hearing the "WYOMING MOUTHPIECE" spout off with his "OLD" wit and wisdom! You sold Wyoming out once and you are primed to sell us and the U.S.A. out again!Take a page out of your own playbook and increase taxes and decrease bennefits on yourself and the other trough-feeders in Washington! Does the new federal freeze on bennefits have an effect on you? Are you willing to cut your life-time salary for you and your family? Are you willing to decrease your A+ health plan for you and congressmen buddies? When you start having to live like 99.5% of the americans instead of the silver-spooners you represent you might have something people might want to hear! For now go back to your cabin in Meeteetsee, or crawl back under your velvet and gold covered rock!

please change my what ever from I hear voices to SAY WHAT! hope you can do this for thanks.
