Get rid of Congresses Personal Jets and Other things

Right now the biggest thing that comes to my mind is Nancy Pelosi and the multi million dollar jet she had the government pay to get her so she could fly nonstop from her home state to DC, with her, her crew, and 200 reporters. Seriously, why is the government paying to transport reporters? Everytime her aircraft flys in any direction it costs the taxpayers 60,000 dollars. Why not do away with all the private aircraft, ...more »

UNEMPLOYMENT = COMMUNITY SERVICE

If we are going to pay people who are unemployed, why don't we get some work out of them!? If nothing else, maybe there can be a minimum amount of community service required to collect these benifits! Just think of all the community projects that could be accomplished by all these millions of people! They would still have more than enough time to search for new jobs, and it might even incintivise some of the people that ...more »

Make English the National or Official Language of the US

Too much money is being wasted on dual/multiple language answering machines, printing, etc. Some commercial establishments are going to the point of having 10-13 languages on printed things. The government cannot afford the cost or lack of efficiency. It is time to make English the national language and the ability to speak and understand English at at least an 8th grade level should be a citizenship requirement. ...more »

Eliminate Congressional Pay for only one term of service

It costs taxpayers millions of dollars and directly contributes to the vast national debt and corruption of all political figures to allow them to vote for their own pay raises and to receive retirement after serving only two to four years in any office under the privilage as being a representative of the people along with having exclusive health care not afforded to any other citizen. Full retirement benefits should ...more »

END BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP!!

This is an idea from the 1800s that anyone born on United States soil is automatically a citizen. Other countries do not do this! You have to be born of a citizen to be a citizen. I think ending this practice will basically solve one of the biggest immigration issues we have. The practice of illegal imigrant coming here to have children (aka anchor babies) so that they can stay in this country. Just something to think ...more »

STOP PAYING CONGRESSMEN & SENATORS WHO ARE IN PRISON

Why is it that if I get put in jail I don't continue to get paid YET a senator or congressman does!!! Talk about waste, fraud and abuse--this is MAJOR. They also should not get a pension for doing one term, that continues for years and years after they leave office. They also should not be able to vote in raises for themselves---the US people should be able to do that. They act like they rule the world and are more important ...more »

Eliminate Congressional Retirements

Congressmen should not be allowed to receive a congressional retirement. They shouldn't serve for long period of times, but should return to private life after one or two terms. We need congress to represent the people, not themselves.

Put a Limit on the Size of Entourages

The size of entourages for members of congress and political appointees needs to be capped. If someone wants an entourage greater than the limit, then they would pay the salaries and expenses of the excess members of the entourage, not the federal government.

Congress shall pass no law that does not apply to all.

No more exceptions. Congress should pass legislation that prevents them from passing any law that does not apply to themselves. They should not have special treatment on medical, retirement, or anything that the citizens of this country do not also have or are prevented from having. If they fail to pass a budget in 90 days, they will not collect retirement, and will be subject to recall. This saves considerable money ...more »
