Campaign: United States Enrichment Corporation Fund

Cancel the subsidy to USEC

Cancel by legislation and adminstative action, all subsidies to USEC. Eliminate the obvious subsidies, and the hidden ones, like sweetheart deals. USEC was supposed to be in the Private sector, not a continual drag on the body politic.

 

Don't make DOE the "bleeding horse" that keeps getting bled to keep USEC in good shape.

We have a thing called ...more »

Campaign: United States Institute of Peace

Increase Budget of Peace agencies

The Institute of Peace and Peace Corp both should have their budget increased. It is obvious we don't have peace in the world. Having various conflicts cost's the US Billions each year. The savings would be that if a small fraction of the Billions spent on conflicts was spent on Peace, we would save more money than we could count. The US should be proactive and avoid conflict instead of waiting for trouble to find ...more »

Campaign: Farm Credit Administration

Reduce Paper copies of IPAC supporting documentation

When being billed for services from other federal agencies, we receive hard copies in the mail of Treasury Form 7306 - the billing statement to support the billing via the Intra-Governmental Payment and Collection (IPAC) System. Instead of receiving these via the mail, there should be an online mechanism to download these directly and save electronic copies of the statements. Or, at least there should be a way to minimize ...more »

Campaign: Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency for the District

Save $100,000,000 year by curtailing supervised release

The U.S. Probation Department costs over $100,000,000 per year to operate. Much of its work is focused upon compliance with the unduly burdensome calculation requirements of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines (which are needlessly complicated) and much of its work is focused on supervising offenders while on supervised release. Both of these functions, while, in theory, are noble, probably do not facilitate outcomes that ...more »

Campaign: Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board

Improve utilization of staff, increase productivity, and

Many federal agencies are wrought with fraud, waste, or abuse easily recognized by staff. Think "elephant in the room". Why not detail current staff members within each of the agencies at each facility who have limited duty secondary to health, disabilities, burn-out, or who are biding their time till retirement to newly created positions to investigate, gather data and/or write reports for the appropriate entities ...more »

Campaign: Standard Setting Body

Cut the fat from the fat cats!

Let's save money be having senators and congressman pay, like the rest of do, for their health coverage and sharply reduce their pensions upon retirement by 50%. There is no need to continue to pay retirement benefits to these people as they are likely to end up earning more than their government salaries by becoming lobbyists -- and those who have been subject to law enforcement action shouldn't get a dime. The people ...more »
