Single Payer - Health Care

This is what the vast majority that voted for President Obama wants; a single payer health care system that is sustainable for the foreseeable future.

 

Why can't we have our REPRESENTATIVES carry out our wishes, and not the wishes of "Big-Business?"

 

Remember, big-business caused the problem; they no interest in solving that which has made them RICH!

All Laws need a "Sunset" clause

Every law should have an expiration date of at most 30 years. Let the legislature renew the law, but I'm tired of them passing new laws for every new story and forever eroding our rights.

 

All we do is add laws. What about cleaning the books and removing old laws?

 

Let's simplify the crazy complexity of our legal system.

The provided verification should be able to be independently verified by the ...more »

In rulemaking & other comment periods, involve the public early; encourage interaction

Public comments in the final stages of rulemaking (the process agencies use to translate legislation into action) are not the most participatory technique, but - online - they are far more transparent than in the past, and generally mandatory! However, by the time a proposed rule or other action is open for comments, important decisions may already have been made. Involving the public earlier and increasing interaction ...more »

Immediate Relief for Healthcare Costs: Stop TV Drug Adds

Stop all prescription drug advertising and save all that money. Furthermore, we would no longer be subjected to offensive and disturbing reminders of our physical fears. An additional side benefit would be not having to watch candle lit intimate scenes implying private chemical induced virility.

Ideas for Improving Transparency, Participation, and Collaboration in the Rulemaking Process

The site, initiated during the Bush Administration, was a useful but limited step forward in making the rulemaking process more transparent and encouraging participation. The site incorrectly gives the impression that THE opportunity ...more »

Because some ideas were posted first the voting may not be entirely fair

If your idea is submitted 5 minutes before the brainstorming process ends it may not receive enough votes to be considered even if its a fantastic idea.

 

How about brainstorming first, then a voting period with consideration of the ideas, then discussion of the top suggestions followed by implementation.
