Create a fair and just (o.k. we are talking about the government) flat tax. Since everyone is constantly talking about "repealling" this or that. Let us start with our out of work politicians who still get paid.
Those that have are always complaining about having to help those that don't, yet we as tax paying citizens have made many of those have's wealthy. Not only are they continuing to take a Hard Working American's tax dollars, they go work for lobbying firms and such and continue to make great deals of money. And then complain about having to help those less fortunate.
If our government officials lost their pay, when they lost their seats....our government would be saving a fortune. If I worked for a company for 15 years and lost my job tomorrow...I'd be out of job an out of pay. What makes them special. They got voted out...same as fired...so why do we continue to pay them and allow our deficit to grow by paying their salaries?
