will go a long way in keeping the assholes in line
Wouldn't bother me at all.
hey if poor people have to get drug tested to get a few dollars of food stampos than these people should be drug tested to keep spending our money dont you think?
executives in general, are never drug tested in the private sector, I seriously doubt they would be in the public service sector either....(our elected officials being the executives)
only the subordinates are subjected to drug tests.
privileged vs non-privileged .....congress will be no different....
it just won't happen in my opinion
You forgot, each vote must be followed up by a lie detector test, taken under oath. Perjury will thin the ranks rather quickly and restore integrity to our system of government.
So contact yer Congresscritter and ask them to craft such an amendment...easy...yes?
The private sector is, generally, not funded by taxpayers. When it is our money, it is our responsibility to ensure that these people meet the standards required for our public employees.
Thats what elections are for.
That the voters dont use them wisely doesnt justify nitwit schemes noted in the OP and advocated by some subscribers of this thread.
Interesting how they always point to the private sector while ignoring those that they elect...(Meaning THEY are paying them)?
The private sector does quite well on it's own self-policing...
It would bother me. This is the same mentality used to treat law-abiding citizens as criminals during TSA checks at airports.
Members of Congress already have to file financial disclosures and are subject to well-documented ethics rules. The problem is that they are not properly enforced.
What we need is to get rid of Congress exempting themselves from the laws they impose on the rest of us (insider trading for example)...and for there to be real penalties for violations.
