Government is out of control and out of touch with reality. From the pork that is added to every flippin bill, to taking care of the big-corp election contributers, to the greedy lobbiest, to the politicians themselves that vote for their own special entitlements, the American taxpayer is getting fleeced everytime they raise taxes on anybody, rich, middle class or poor. It has been said many times.... We don't have a revenue problem, we have a spending problem. Dems and Repubs are both to blame, neither will admit it, and think it is the other party's fault.
What we need is for a 3rd party to take hold in America and I'm not suggesting the Tea Party but an entirely new party that will eliminate everything I have stated. Make each bill pass on it's own merit, no adding projects. No more campaign contributions from anyone. All election funds for campaigns comes from a small fee $10 or $20 collected from every tax paying citizen. It is divided up equally to each party. They can distribute the money to which ever candidate they want, but once it is gone, no more. Outcast the lobbiest. The politicians should get their ideas for bills and the pressure on how to vote from their constituants, not any other source. Eliminate all special entitlements for politicians. They use the same health care system, the same retirement fund(Social Security), the same everything as the American taxpayers. Every bill they pass onto the backs of the American citizens must also include them. No more than 2 terms in office total, ever. Then they go back to work like the rest of us. It is total BS what they have given themselves. It is WAY past time to take control of government and put it back into the hands of the people. We aren't suppose to be working for them, they are suppose to be working for us!
