All presidential and congress candidates must be required to produce their tax returns.

Also, put all investments in a blind trust and if elected divest them.

What other changes do you suggest to avoid in the future the appalling and dangerous situation we've found ourselves in.

All presidential candidates must have prior experience in elected office at either the federal, state or municipal level. If one has never held an elected office, then that person would be disqualified from running.

There has been little attention to this proposed legislation. It would be the first of many needed steps to ensure that democracy is never hijacked again. The bill will only be successful if Democrats have a clean sweep. Even then, one can anticipate that the Republicans will tie the legislation up in court battles for years. Unfortunately, Trump and McConnell have stacked the courts, so one could expect adverse legal decisions. But we must try!

How to strengthen and implement the emoluments clause?

by Anonymousreply 5Last Sunday at 12:56 AM

Where are we at with Nancy and the 25th? That needs to be sharpened too.

Limit the duration that people can be appointed to positions that normally require Senate confirmation.

Limit use of executive orders.

Make it easier to impeach a President and SCOTUS Justice.

Make it easier to invoke the 26th amendment. As it is, the VP alone can skuttke the entire process, and that’s just too much power given to one man.

A new law with carefully crafted language to reverse citizens united, that will pass SCOTUS scrutiny. Failing that, a constitutional amendment.

Require stares to apportion electors according by the winner of the congressional district, instead of statewide winner-take-all. This will dilute the power of the scarcely populated Western states in favor of urban areas, so it will be hard to implement.

Allow electors to vote for someone other than who they were originally pledged to. That’s the entire reason for their existence, to serve as a check on an irrational,public rabble.

Reinstate Obamacare, but lower the eligibility age for Medicare to 55, with the goal,of Medicare for all, gradually, ove the next generation.

Reverse the policy that allows Presidents to endure civil suits in office, but not face criminal,charges. To an ambitious man, as President, a civil suit is just as distracting as a criminal suit. And a criminal suit is more important to address. They have it exactly backward.

For starters.

Oh, yeah, and raise the cap on the tax deductibility of state and local taxes combined with state income taxes. Trump capped It at $10,000, but in the expensive Blue Coast states, many people’s costs exceed this cap and it was designed to punish Trump Blue opponents.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
