I am leaking money on cash tables by calling all in after raise re raise preflop. I keep loosing with qq should i just call a raise or reraise or should i be happy to see it go all in and eventually the odds will swing in my favour.

It depends.

There are a lot of players who's preflop stack off range 100bb+ deep is exactly AA/KK. If I'm up against a LAG in a button v blind or blind v blind war, I'm happy to get QQ in the middle (because they will do so with a range against which QQ makes money). If I'm facing a raise from a tight player who's UTG, stacking off QQ preflop is lighting money on fire... in fact 3-betting becomes generally bad in such a situation and I will flat call most of the time.

If you are losing money all in pre with QQ routinely then you may be choosing some bad spots in some cases.
