Congressional gift ban

Yes, yes, I am all for this: a Congressional gift ban, meal ban, travel ban, ban on earmarks, and a ban on no-bid contracts. Lobbyists should not be able to buy politicians. I have no problem as a taxpayer paying more for Congressional travel on fact-finding missions as long as it cuts lobbyists out of the loop. Eliminating earmarks may reduce spending enough to pay for it anyway.

According to Larry Jacobs, "the odds of this passing are long." That's because the bums in Congress now are accustomed to being bought. Throw them out and insist that our new elected officials reform Congress. It's the only way to eliminate these scandals.
