Robert Fitzgerald on Government Reform

 


Lobbyist scandals and bribes threaten faith in democracy

An independent council should lead ethics reform. To have lawmakers police themselves is ripe for abuse. Lobbyist scandals, no-bid contracts, and flat out bribes threaten our faith in our democracy.

Both parties have given away power to the Presidency

Separation of powers are threatened by politicians who put their party ahead of their responsibility to Congress. In the US Senate, power has increasingly been given away to the Presidency by Democrats and Republicans more interested in partisan maneuvering than in being responsible. Put citizens first, party second.
