One way to take ownership of the debt as a nation is to add one cent onto every transaction nationwide to ...more »
Instead of constantly remaking signs to put up, place televisions with information on them in order to direct people and educate electronically. These could be like billboards and would be easier to direct people when things in the hospital move such as a sign pointing to the new lab area, etc.

Today, welfare spending is the largest item in the federal budget, standing at $888 out of the $3.6 trillion of the federal budget, that is nearly 25% of federal funds.

Members have absolutely no incentive for saving the Government money under the OHA system. Short term estimated savings in Guam alone: $45,000,000+ per year Long term ...more »
When the Obamacare package came up and I heard it was 2500 pages long, it made me wonder how long a bill can really be. So I started reading some of it, and quite frankly I was rather upset.
