WilliamA: Both political parties have problems with select members trying to grab power for their own good. The voters seem not to count anymore, we are according to some of the emails that came out, just peeps. Well here is what this peep wants. 1. Resign to run. If an elected official wants to run for another office, they need to resign. Pence and Kaine are going to spend 100% of their time running. Why should they be paid for the jobs they are elected to when they are not doing them ? 2. No federal support for any presidential convention. The political party needs to fund all costs of the venue and security. I think the take this year was $100 million 3. Any single party meeting that is closed door may not be held in a public building that is taxpayer funded. If the public or members of the other party is excluded, then the political party need to find and fund the meeting space. 4. Term limits - 2 times at bat in the senate - 3 times at bat in congress. If you have had your three times at bat in congress, then forget about running for the senate. Your time in Washington is up. 5. Daily online postings of meetings for all those under the dome. Who what and when. 6. Gifts and favors - No gifts, no dinners, no cocktail parties, no fact finding missions or golf games in Scotland. At $173,000 members are already well paid. 7. Pension - 95% of us in the real world do not get one, so why should a congressman get one. Contribute to a 401K like the rest of us. This is only a start. 7. No free parking at Washington airports
