Pass federal USURY laws so that lending companies have to honor the rates set by the states in which the CONSUMER live (instead of where the banking business is organized since some states do not have any usury limit). This would put more money into the consumers pockets to pay down debt or to spur growth in the economy.
The first thing I would do is to encourage Congress to be congressmen as a second career - and to cut their pay, vacations, pensions etc. It is ridiculous that they make such huge amounts, have limos, and all of the benefits when so much of our nation is suffering.
