Question of the Day: Who's at the top of your bad service complaint list?

(CNNMoney) - With the economy still in shambles and many Americans still struggling to emerge from debt, find jobs and support their families, there's plenty to complain about. Add fraud and predatory lending to the mix and the list of consumer complaints gets even longer.

Shady auto dealers yet again took the number one spot on the Consumer Federation of America's list for the highest number of complaints in 2010, followed by credit card issuers and debt relief companies.

Question of the Day: What would you like to tell your elected representative?

In his address to the nation on Monday night, President Obama called on the American people to "make your voice heard" and call members of Congress about the debt talks gridlock.

Since Obama's speech, House switchboards have been flooded by phone calls - nearly twice the normal average - and hit with an unusual volume of constituent e-mails as voters voice their concerns over the worsening debt-ceiling crisis.

Question of the Day: If you had the budget ax, what would you cut first and what would you keep?

(CNN) - Last night, President Barack Obama called on the American public to pressure elected officials to work out a compromise to raise the federal debt ceiling and avoid a potentially devastating default.

The president's speech was intended to convince an increasingly frustrated and concerned public that Obama's approach to dealing with mounting deficits is better for working class Americans and the nation as a whole.

In a televised response, Boehner argued the opposite, saying that excessive government spending caused the problems the nation faces and cutting that spending is the only way to solve the problem.

Question of the Day: What's your funniest hotel experience?

The international hotel chain Crowne Plaza is aiming to help its guests sleep more soundly by introducing "snore patrols" and "snore absorption rooms" at a number of its sites around the world.

In an attempt to combat noisy sleepers, "snore monitors" patrol the hallways in the designated quiet zones of Crowne Plaza hotels, listening for noise disruptions and knocking on the doors of guests who snore too loudly. "Snore absorption rooms" feature the latest in snore control technology, such as white noise machines and anti-snoring pillows.

Crowne Plaza hopes that these measures will make staying at their hotels a more enjoyable experience for guests.
