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

1. To increase transparency, participation, and collaboration in the rulemaking process start telling the truth, the whole truth, about rulemaking on the government’s Regulations.gov website. 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 »

"Open Government" must be based on knowledge, honesty and justice. No more spinning of information...

Other contributors under this initiative asked for truth to be told by the Government, e.g., in science, business, without "spinning" the information to suit its political purpose.

Limit frivolouse lawsuits

Why don't you limit the lawyers from filing frivolous lawsuits? When someone slips and falls on a grape in the supermarket, they sue and get paid off. This is ridiculous. When a doctor tries to save someone’s life and they die, they get sued. If you truly want to bring down the cost of health insurance, STOP THE LAWYERS that are adding hundreds of millions of dollars to the cost. Oh yea, after thinking about my question ...more »
