Government Protection of G.I.'s

Our Government, without batting an eyelash, provided 30 months of U.S. Marshals' protection (paid for by the U.S. taxpayer) for the late-term abortionist George Tiller. Now when 2 of our Army G.I.s are gunned down in front of an Army Recruitment office by a Muslim extremist, what response do we get from the White House or the State run media? NOTHING. Just total silence. Why…? Are our Military men and Women not worth ...more »

Encourage, support, and fund interagency initiatives, programs, and projects

The current budgeting and funding of agency programs and projects inhibits and even discourages interagency partnering and collaboration. Let's offer incentives and provide options to make it easier for federal agencies to work collaboratively with one another.

Fannie and Freddie

Policy makers need to stand up and take responsibility for their actions. The housing bubble and its aftermath arose from market distortions created by the Federal Reserve, Government backing of Fannie and Freddie, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the Federal Housing Authority. We are experiencing the unfortunate results of preverse government policies. Yet these policies have not changed and fannie ...more »

Link Federal Agency Collaboration to creating Coherent Public Participation Frameworks

Many different federal agencies work on common issue areas. DOJ, Labor, HHS, Education, and others,for example, work on similar youth issues. In community, agency #1 may be trying to prevent juvenile delinquency while agency #2 is working on teen pregnancy prevention and agency #3 is working on youth employment (which is often an possible strategy for the work of agency #1 and #2).

Support Interagency Collaboration

To support collaborative governance, agencies need to share information and expertise. Agencies need a shared platform for collaborative governance. Historically, the Administrative Conference of the United States played an important role in the growth of dispute resolution, and could serve a similar function more broadly for collaborative governance, provided it was interdisciplinary and not focused on law. Moreover, ...more »

Consolidate purchasing and administration for prescription benefits for federal health care expenditures

The Federal government already pays for between 40 and 50 percent of the health care in the United States. How? When you include active military, VA, medicare, medicaid, federal employees, children, and disability care, the number ranges between 40 and 50 percent. Yet, the payment structure, administration, and prescription lists are vastly different across programs and agencies. It is a well acknowledged fact that prescription ...more »

Equal Opportunity, Presidential Office and Supreme COurt

Reinforce the truly American principal, Equal Opportunity. Mr McCain's birth records were officially perused and verified by Senate and Congress, its time for Mr. Obama to produce this simple piece of paper which will put this issue at rest. (However, remember Mr Obama met with 2/3+ of the Supreme Court and the fix is already in). The cases are in the hands of the Supreme Court, time for them to deal with Equal Opportunity. ...more »

Federal Agencies Should Model Collaboration.

The Open Government Directive should help agencies model the practice of collaboration. This means that in deciding how to organize, expand, and institutionalize collaborative and participatory governance, agencies should consult broadly with their own staff.

Direct the Federal Executive Boards (FEBs) to develop plans for collaborative projects that engage the public on regional issues

Most of the Federal government is actually not based in Washington, DC. Approximately 88 percent of all Federal employees work outside the National Capital Region. Federal programs have their impact largely through the actions of the field representatives of the departments and agencies. The Federal Executive Boards are a forum for communication and collaboration among Federal agencies outside of Washington, DC. The ...more »
