Back to Common Sense
  • The gridlock in Washington points to failure. What do leaders do? What do chief executives do? They lead. Do the job you were sent to Washington to do. LEAD
    1. We need a Balanced Budget Amendment.
    2. The IRS will be eliminated. In its place will be either a Flat Tax or a National Sales Tax. If a Flat Tax, it would include everyone with no exceptions. If a National Sales Tax, the only things not taxed would be Medical and Prescription Drugs. Any other things to be added to that list would have to be approved by a 2/3 majority of both Houses.
    3. Under no circumstances could the Executive Branch circumvent Congress. If Congress was not in session they would have to be called back for a Special Session.
    4. No ballots during any election would be marked with party affiliation in association with any candidates name.
    5. Congress will pass nothing that will exclude anyone, especially themselves and other Federal employees from the law.
    6. Once service for an elected or appointed position is over, all perks and compensation will cease.
    7. There will be Term Limits for all Federal Judges and Supreme Court Judges, with a mandatory retirement age of 70.
    8. There will be Term Limits for Congress. Two 5 year terms for Senators and Three 3 year terms for Representatives.
    9. All funds in the Congressional Retirement Fund will be moved into the Social Security system and Congress will participate like all other Americans.
    10. Congress can purchase their own retirement plans just like everyone else.
    11. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise but will receive a salary equal to the National Average Income.
    12. All Congressmen will have equal expense accounts to be determined by a panel made up of 5 Republicans, 5 Democrats, 5 attorneys and 5 average citizens chosen at random whose incomes are that of the National Average.
    13. Salaries of all government employees will be equal to that of similar positions in private industry.
    14. All campaign contributions will go into one pot and be doled out to the candidates equally..
    15.Congress will lose their health care system and will participate in the same system as everyone else.
    16.All contracts with past and present Congressmen are null and void.
    17. Affordable Health Care Act will be replaced by a law that will be designed by 5 Republicans, 5 Democrats, 5 Business owners large and small, 5 Doctors and Hospital Administrators and 5 Attorneys. In order to expedite this no salaries will be paid till completed, then be submitted to Congress.
    18 Immigration reform will be handled in the same manner. 5 Republicans, 5 Democrats, 5 Governors and 5 Attorneys, will draft the Bill, then submit it to Congress
    19. There will be no more Ear Marks. All Bills will have to stand on their own.
    20. Voter ID will be mandatory by the use of a National ID Card.
    21. No one on Government assistance will be allowed to vote.
    Enough is enough. If you want my vote and many others that believe in America, you will subscribe to the above demands, all of them. My vote will go to people, regardless of Party Affiliation, who stand up for what the people want and not what is good for themselves or the Party. I will vote to elect people to stand up for me and the will of the people. It is time for Congress to start working for the people and come together in compromise to solve our problems
  • As Mark Twain asked: " If common sense were so common, why is there so little of it?
  • FLAT TAX is a MUST
