There is No Reason Why CRS Reports Should Not be Public

The Congressional Research Service does some excellent research and analysis on all manner of things. These reports are not officially accessible to taxpayers.

 

CRS reports to Congress or individual members of Congress should be readily accessible via the World Wide Web within two weeks of their delivery to the requesting member(s).

Verifying eligibility to be president of the USA

Where is Obama's birth certificate and why is he spending all the money to keep it and his school records sealed? I have to cough up my BC, my kids' BC's, death certificates... you name it, to navigate the gov't red tape. So I ask... why doesn't Obama have to? Is Obama above us all? Is Obama and his ilk 'special' ??? Obama not showing his real BC is a joke. Sorry, a photo-shopped BC won't get me past the DMV lady!!! ...more »

Provide an online, visually interactive, one-stop-shop, federal budget website.

A single website that allows users to interactively and visually explore the federal budget. The site should start out with basic high-level information about revenue, expense, deficit, and then allow users to click on a category of interest to drill down into the details and see precisely where money is being spent. Most people are not economists so the information should be basic but allow users the opportunity to ...more »

Lobbyists

This information may be somehow available somewhere, I don't know.

But since the lobbyists control Congress by their "contributions," it would be nice to find out easily what lobbyist, working for what interest group/corporation, is contributing how much money, to what Congressmen, regarding what legislation, pro or con.

Make Obama's long from birth certificat public. Until this happens thier will be a cloud of doubt over any and all decisions made while in office. What is being hidden? Why spend so much $$ to keep this secret? I don't understand the issue with making this information available?

Open publicly funded research results

Publicly funded research results are typically published in a journal that requires a subscription. Results should be published online, free for anyone to access. This could be accomplished quite simply by making open publishing a condition of the research grant.

Produce Obama's Long Form Birth Certificate and College Records

He has spent over $1,000,000 in legal fees to prevent the legal discovery of his real birth certificate and immediately passed legislation that would prevent anyone from viewing these documents. People who aren't questioning these moves are simply ignorant. About 1/2 of Americans didn't trust Obama before the election and that percentage is growing rapidly. For the sake of our country, make these documents (not forgeries...) ...more »

Demonstrate that you are a natural-born citizen.

Why should Americans believe you are genuine on the subject of "transparency" when you have spent nearly a million dollars to keep records concealed which would, according to your supporters (and you, presumably), prove that you are a natural-born U.S. citizen, and therefore eligible to hold the office you occupy? Unless there is information on those various documents, COMPLETE birth certificate, your college admission ...more »

Verify Citizenship Status

As citizens of the United States, and the employers of ALL those who work in our government, we have a right to know if any of them, including the president, are qualified for their job. Considering that the current administration made a promise of transparency, it is very telling that the current resident of the White House has not disclosed his citizenship status, college records, clients lists and other pertinent ...more »
