The Bureaucratic Machine of Executive Power: The Fourth Branch of Government?

This post invites commentary that asks and attempts to inspire answers to the question of whether the Constitution and will of Congress explicitly or implicitly give these powers in effect to the Executive Branch.

Congress Rediscovers What It Feels Like to Earn an Hourly Wage? Tosh!

My latest brain child: a bill that forces Congress to justify NOT earning an hourly wage like most Americans.

How about we propose a bill that changes congressional pay from salary to hourly? No work, no pay.

This would mean no double dipping. No earning a salary for campaigning and fundraising. To allow this would be like me expecting my law firm to pay me, a paralegal, to canvass for myself during work hours….

After all, it’s a relevant and justifiable expense to them. I am campaigning to make law.

Congress, you are playing with fire. First it will be housing, then it will be food. We the people will soon be starving and, if the French Revolution taught you anything, that does not bode well for the fat cats.
