Department of the Interior

Reduce the cost of government

Consider the benefits provided to Members of Congress. Members of the Senate serve just one term in office and receive a pension--federal employees must serve the people of the United States of America for 30 years in order to receive a pension. Members of Congress--both House and Senate, receive expense accounts for which they are not accountable. Expense accounts should be established on a reimburseable system. There should be a list of reimburseable expenses, and they should have to provide receipts much like the federal employees do to be reimbursed rather than an open expense account.

    Legislators are also part of federal government.
