I have long advocated for 6-year terms for president with no re-election. Gives him one year to kiss the special interest *** that got him elected, and to try to fake "fulfill" the stupid campaign promises, like they all waste their first year doing. Then it also gives them one year to campaign for his replacement, like they waste their last year doing for their own reelection anyway. So then they have 4 years in the middle to actually be productive.

I like the idea of 5-year terms for everyone else because it staggers the elections against the presidents so we hopefully see more mixing and matching in Congress and the Senate. I would also say that any law-maker can have no more than 3 terms, but they cannot run consecutively. They have to take at least a term off in between. So you can be in the Senate for 5 years, then out for 5 years, then possibly re-elected if you run again, and so on. There is some benefit to have experience in Congress, as so much of what they do depends on connections that take time to build and maintain.

One more thing they need is full financial transparency for anyone in a public political position, and the elimination of lobbying. Call it what it is, bribery, and prosecute accordingly.

But yeah, none of this is changing because it would hurt the people who have to vote it in, would take them out of their cushy comfortable lives and make them actually connect with people and make a difference and be honest. And none of them want that.
Good luck with getting financial transparency and ending lobbying with this Supreme Court. It’s only become more conservative since citizens United in 2010

In other words you can't take care of yourself and need me to. Typical loser mentality. Idiots probably think it's $0 dollars. You're(well I am, I work and make decent money not GF or Alt-Fish) still paying for it. Just disguised as inflation.

1.7 Trillion dollars and it addresses little . We've dumped over 10 trillion dollars into the economy and look where you're idiot president has us. Record failures across the board. Medicaid is dead in the water. It's nearly 800 billion a YEAR. So what TF is 300B more going to change in the near future? The lack of basic economics is truly scary. 400B for childcare? Ok, nice but that's not a tremendous amount of money as far as the future goes... Once the bank runs dry???

Then Gameface will have his socialism... We already see it with empty shelves.

Why do Republicans advertise our plans better than we do? This is awesome! Who could complain about this?


I love the responses. Seems like everyone is pretty happy with it. Its not there is money for reparations for black people or forced CRT teachings right? Seems like the items on that list benefit republicans the same much as they benefit democrats.

Agreed. I think that’s why almost half of all the republicans in the senate voted for it, including Mitch McConnell and mitt Romney. Are they socialists???

Here are the 19 Republicans who voted in favor of the bill:

  • Roy Blunt, Missouri
  • Richard Burr, North Carolina
  • Shelley Moore Capito, West Virginia
  • Bill Cassidy, Louisiana
  • Susan Collins, Maine
  • Kevin Cramer, North Dakota
  • Mike Crapo, Idaho
  • Deb Fischer, Nebraska
  • Lindsey Graham, South Carolina
  • Chuck Grassley, Iowa
  • John Hoeven, North Dakota
  • Mitch McConnell, Kentucky
  • Lisa Murkowski, Alaska
  • Rob Portman, Ohio
  • James Risch, Idaho
  • Mitt Romney, Utah
  • Dan Sullivan, Alaska
  • Thom Tillis, North Carolina
  • Roger Wicker, Mississippi

The Republicans are convincing me that I'm actually pro-socialism. I didn't think I was, but they simply won't take no for an answer.
I have seen "socialism" in action. It is da DEBIL!!!!

Actually it works pretty good. So I guess I am pro-socialism. Since my son, who deals with epilepsy and other issues associated, has to spend nearly $750 a month for prescriptions to control it, AFTER insurance. Our medical system is so broken it is ridiculous. My wife need surgery for her hip dysplasia, a very invasive and tough surgery, but insurance decided it wasn't medically necessary. So she is stuck with severe pain, and guess what? We can't get pain pills for her because the state controls what the doctor can prescribe.

If I get the chance I will move back to Germany in a heartbeat.
