A directive from America to Congress. And I like it. Who wouldn’t?
I’ve taken this from an awesome website, The-Freshmen-50. The founder, Brian Miller running in Arizona has never held or run for office before but he strongly believes that 50 fiscally and legislatively responsible freshmen candidates (not veteran politicians already tainted by the corruption so pervasive in Washington DC) can be found and elected.
HERE’S THE PLATFORM:
Apply the Law Equally: All laws that apply to all citizens also apply to Congress
Term Limits: Amend the Constitution to limit Congressmen and Senators to no more than 12 years.
Enforce Congressional Ethics:
- Mandatory, annual tax and expense audits of every member
- No member of Congress or their staff, can ever be hired as a lobbyist to Congress, paid or otherwise.
- Change rules so that only 50% of the ethics committee need to approve an investigation (fewer allegations swept under the rug)
Reform the Federal Tax Code: Replace the current federal tax code with a clear, simple and fair tax code which includes:
- Tax only once
- Tax at one rate
- A Constitutional amendment requiring a two-thirds majority for any new tax hike
