Absolutely absurd proposal.

Does the author read the same news sources as I do? I read that we are virtually bankrupt and we must STOP spending or we will lose our credibility as a nation.

If this is such a damn good idea, find someone else to underwrite a trial program and then - as our finances are in MUCH better shape,

come back and offer it again.

Meanwhile, tell us how you would REDUCE the costs of Federal involvement in your District or the areas where you can cite facts.

Can't these idiots quit spending. What part of "we don't have any money" do they not understand?

Yes, indeed another example of utterly stupid many of our legislators are. many of them can't balance a checkbook, let alone manage our countries finances. Hey stupid, just past legislation that makes it federal offense to own assault type firearms. Cost to taxpayer "$0".
