A genius new petition asks the White House to require senators and members of congress to wear the logos of their financial backers on their suits anytime they're on the job. The bigger the donation, the bigger the label, & the more foolish politicians

I Can't Wait To See The Obama Administration's Reply To This Amazing And Totally Ridiculous Petition

A genius new petition asks the White House to require senators and members of congress to wear the logos of their financial backers on their suits anytime they're on the job. The bigger the donation, the bigger the label, and the more foolish politicians would look for pushing the agendas sewn onto their sleeves. This is the kind of humiliation I can get behind!

Being Liberal

The entire system needs to be fixed so that NO financial institutions, or oil companies or any other company or wealthy individual can buy politicians. Get the money out of it. Make radio and TV ads limited to one 1-minute ad per candidate per day and make it free. (won't see many of them either, lol, an added bonus). Also, take away the districts like the ones they are busy gerrymandering to cheat on the votes. Divide the states into squares straight lines north and south, and east and west. Let the people in those districts vote however they want to. Monitor online, the votes so no cheating is going on. That is something that "Anonymous" can do, so why not the government. Let the votes all be counted on the national level, take the cheating out of the states. Many millions more dems won last year in the House but because of the gerrymandering and cheating, more Rs got into the House than were voted for. We need to get all this cheating and money out of the politics in order for the government to work FOR the PEOPLE. And have jail time mandatory for those who break these rules.

Also, no work, no pay, including their insurance benefits and pension funding. Right now the House has voted to work 2 weeks and be off 2 weeks, they didn't work last year from most of July thru the rest of the year except for a couple of weeks in Nov. Would you be able to keep a job if that is all the time you put in? Nope.

Perhaps it needed the larger space across his back Angelika?

Loooool Jl-that must be it, agreed! Great comment from Barbara here, and gee-if there is evidence for " Many millions more dems won last year in the House but because of the gerrymandering and cheating, more Rs got into the House than were voted for. " then I better stop immediately accusing the American people for being responsible for Reps House majority and the mess Congress is creating .

Signed #35008.

I agree Kit, but they really should identify their allegiances because all too often it seems it is not the people that elected them.
