Washington....It seems like every attempt at real change gets shot down...
Is it obvious I am frustrated with politics and politicians as a whole, right now?
On other threads I've suggested or agreed,
No lobbyists period
Senators elected per Constitution as originally intended
Bills in congress shall be single subject stand alone bills
No amendments to bills of congress unrelated to original bills subject shall be allowed
No gimmicks in legislation such as tacking on unrelated subjects to get a bill either passed or failed
No gimmicks such as stripping bills by senate to bypass origination clause in constitution
Send all Judicial rulings back to congress to re-legislate if found unconstitutional.
Force administrative branch to submit balanced budget to congress for consideration except in times of congressionaly declared war or emergency - bar
executive orders to contrary - use 60 day limit like war powers act.
Bar public bailout of private corporations and bar government takeover of same for reasons other than congressionally approved national security
I'm sure others can add much more here but think these would go aways in breaking up system as it stands.
