Govt help (welfare/Medicaid) needs to be temporary

People should not be on govt help indefinitely, especially if they are on welfare and able to work, the govt should find jobs around that person's home that need to be done and have no one to do them. Short training just for a specific task, you educate people and take them off welfare at the same time.

Tax the Rich and Corporate

No reason why the rich can’t pay higher taxes, after they get taxed, there still rich a million dollars. Five hundred fortune companies will still be making a billion dollars a year. America wouldn’t be in the situation it’s in now if it wasn't for its debt! Who says more debt is better?

Live like those you represent

I think that Senators and other elected representatives shouldn't earn more money than the majority of the populace earns. If the median income in the US is, for arguements sake, $40,000 a year, than I think this should be what the majority of elected earn. How can you represent the vast majority of Americans if you live on a salary that is double or triple their own, how can you relate and understand? This would free ...more »
