• How About a Pay Cut for Congress?!
    We the People pay Congress to do their job, and frankly they haven't been doing a very good one lately. Wasting our time and money over partisan power struggles and not caring if we default on our debt. They are the only workers I know of that take the liberty to give themselves raises, whether or not they deserve or have earned them. Yet there are members of Congress who would like to take away the hard earned benefits (like Social Security & Medicare) that ordinary people have contributed to all of their working lives.

  • Make Sure Our Politicians Are As Smart as a High School Graduate
    I'm distressed at the fact that many running for public office say things that could easily be debunked by any person who can remember what s/he learned in high school U. S. History and Civics classes. To protect us from this kind of ignorance, we need to ask states to make it a requirement that any person running for public office must pass a standard high school lvel U. S. History and Civics test.

  • Campaign Reform
    Until we have campaign reform, we will be exhausting ourselves chasing down every injustice one by one without ever rebuilding the foundation of democracy: our representatives.

  • Equality For All
    It's about an idea for a 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and for Congressional Reform, proposed in an email that's been making the rounds; it's not my idea, but it is one that I embrace fully. Congress needs to be reformed to be more in line with how the American people live.

  • We demand a better President!
    President Obama you made a lot of campaign promises that you've failed to live up to through no ones fault but your own. We expect more from you than you gave us. I did not elect a right leaning centrist. I elected Obama on the promises of hope change and progress for a better future.

  • Bernie Sanders For President
    We need a President that will stand up for Progressive middle and working class values. A true fighter in the mold of FDR is exactly what we need but unfortunately don't have in the White House right now.

  • Congressional Salaries, Pensions and Benefits
    Any bill passed by congress to restrict or limit Social Security or Medicare benefits of the people will result in an equal loss of salaries, pensions and medical benefits to all past, present and future members of congress. If we can live with less, so can they.

  • Social Security for Public Employees
    As long as the Government is for the Government and not for the people it can never be a fair and good government. When their entitlements are the same as the peoples entitlements then we will all be working together instead of working for one group or the other. The government will then be working for the good of all it's citizens. Let's start with Social Security. All public employees will retire on Social Security and the government will not have separate plans.

  • Term Limits 4 Members of Congress!
    My petition speaks for itself! House of Representatives, and Senators alike would never ever bring this bill up for a vote. We all know why, they would be voting themselves out of a job!!Duh!! 2 terms, after that so long!

  • Political Office Reform
    No tenure/pensions for elected officials at any level. Serving is a priviledge, not an entitlement. Also, they should have to participate in the same health care programs they are trying to force upon Americans. This is yet another way to cut the debt!
