"People of America Unite and Pay Down Debt" with a tax

"And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country." John F. Kennedy
Today I made a purchase at J.C. Pennies and the cashier asked if I would like to round up my purchase from $23.37 to $24 and donate .63 cents towards a charity they participate in.

Reduce Size of Government and add Efficiency

I have worked with the Federal Government as a civilian specialist (USFS, BLM, USGS, etc.)and, for the government as an employee.

printing

The idea that reducing printing on ink and paper is not a bad idea however to do so only to have the items taken from digital media and then mass produced at the Offices of Goverment where needed would only serve to blow the cost out at no less than five times what GPO would have produced said doc's in the first place. Knee jerk solutions generally aren't prudent........Haste makes waste. We at gpo are constantly innovating... more »

Honor the Dead Warriors by Helping the Service Connected Veteran

Stop providing duplicate Social Security and Veterans Affairs benefits to Non Service Connected Veterans. This new initiative would be similar to the program now in effect between the Department of Defense and the Veterans Affairs for military retirees.
