Fully fund participation and collaboration activities

Agencies generally do not adequately plan for or budget to integrate public participation or collaborative processes into their programmatic work. To undertake small and large-scale public participation or collaborative efforts, agencies often have to re-program personnel and dollars or look to other program sources, effectively “robbing Peter to pay Paul.” Additionally, many public participation and collaborative efforts ...more »

Support HR 676 Single Payer Medicare for All NOW

This health program will save $380 billion at least over the cost of the plans that include private insurance. Currently 31 cents from every health care dollar goes for profits and paperwork of the insurance companies. Yet we Americans pay twice what citizens of every other industrialized country pay, and still don't cover 47 million and we have people losing their jobs and health care every day. Enrolling everyone ...more »

Audit the FED

They told the Congress to take a flying leap, when asked how our two trillion dollars was parceled out to foreign banks and other fat cats. We don't even know if Americans sit as the majority of the FED board, and their meeting minutes are as hidden as the usurper's birth and school documents.

Reporting Budgeting Abuse

Create a mechanism by which federal employees can ANANOMOUSLY and openly report waste, fraud, and abuse of government funds at each agency. Employees in the federal government often know best where the skeletons are buried or which closet they are hidden in but fear, intimidation, and retaliation are alive and well today in many federal agencies so employees will not speak up because they know they will all of a sudden ...more »

Make Congress Responsible

The very idea that Congress can allocate billions of dollars that don't exist is wrong. Make all Congressional pay subject to a budget surplus. If the budget is in deficit then Congress and their staff will be paid minimum wage. When there's enough surplus in the budget to pay Congress and their staff they should receive the pay they get now with no increases unless a majority of Americans request a Congressional ...more »

Abolish the Income Tax

The income tax is unconstitutional therefore illegal. The 16th Amendment was never properly ratified. There are MUCH better ways of collecting taxes that are more efficient and more fair. A progressive income tax is another fascist act they pretend is apart of the American way. This also involves getting rid of the Federal Reserve and the IRS.

End The War in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2009. GET US OUT.

These wars are a waste of taxpayer's money and a waste of soldier's lives. Let those countries figure out solutions to their own problems. We can not afford to fight over there. Let's use our limited resources to fix problems at home. For Example: We could employ soldiers as school teacher assistants. During Peacetime, there are not many tasks to occupy a soldier's time. They could be kept busy by teaching practical math ...more »

Provide Adequate Funding and Resources for FOIA offices and E-Government Initiatives

Implement a formula that establishes a minimum percentage of the agencies’ Public Affairs Office (PAO) budgets to be spent on FOIA expenses. Without adequate resources devoted to FOIA, agency morale and the ability to fully adhere to the requirements of the law will not likely improve. GAO should be asked to analyze the current funding for FOIA and assess funding sufficiency based on agency size, FOIA personnel, number ...more »
