Letter: Fix the feds

To the Editor:

Fix the feds!

Fix the feds!

1. Don’t prohibit shutdowns. Prohibit paying members of Congress and their staffs during shutdowns.

2. Pass legislation requiring all presidential and congressional candidates to make public their past five years of income tax returns.

3. Require members of Congress access only to Social Security and Affordable Health Care Act programs – not the parallel gold programs they have now.  

4. Political action committee programs are legalized bribery, and when members of Congress retire, they take PAC money with them. End PAC programs.

5. Shorten the misery of political campaigns! Limit presidential campaigns to six months before the election.

6. End career politicians and enact term limits. Our Founding Fathers never envisioned career politicians.
