I think everyone here is coming up with some great ideas. If American's could take a little from each of you and come up with a workable solution,
our current problems with the House and Senate could be a thing of the past.
Term limits are imperative to stop some from losing touch with the constituent's they serve, as well as preventing lobbyists from focusing too much
on individual legislator's. Do away with lobbyists, super PAC's, and private funding, and we are on our way to solving many problems.
Serving does not entitle anyone to a lifetime salary or insurance. In addition, serving does not entitle any member to a guaranteed salary. If
Medicare, Social Security, Military retirement or their healthcare, are subject to cuts, House and Senate members are the first to lose salaries,
along with the President and his staff, and all department heads.
I really like the abolishment of a two party system. Publicly funded elections is a great idea as well.
EVERY member of Congress should be subject to recall elections. We the People retain the right to decide when our elected members of Congress
have strayed from the trust we placed in them.
Me personally, I feel Federal judges should be limited to a term of 10 years. If they are subsequently appointed to one of the Circuit courts, they
are then limited to a 10 year term. Supreme Court Justices must retire on or before they attain the age of 75.
These are some of the things listed in this thread, and some of my ideas thrown in.
