    Ban all paid lobbyists. They should be allowed to collect only reasonable expenses.
    Ban access to elected officials based on campaign donations.

    Also refine baby refine. Put an export tariff on refined products until our refining capacity is increased 25%.
    Oil prices would remain on the world market but refined products would be based on demand in the USA more if export tariffs were placed on them.

    I don't have a problem with reputable lobbyists, per se. Those who cross the line with bribes - in any shape or form - are the problem and are criminals. The DOJ needs to prosecute and the courts must put in prison those who offer and those who accept bribes. It matters not if he offender is a member of congress or a staffer, a member of our military or any federal agency.

    I also hope that those who cheat Medicare - and a number were busted the other day - should if convicted loose their medical license if they have one, pay full restitution to the government and be placed in prison for not less than one year and one day.

    Better yet on the fraud.

    A law requireing 200% restitution of all fraudlent money gained.
    So no one can just pay a $50K fine on a 200 million profit.
    It would no longer just be a cost of doing business.

    Good plan; that's one way to put us on track to reduce the debt. Though I would add this caveat, restitution to be paid by the management of the corporation, as a condition of probation and in lieu of a long prison sentence. Miss one payment and off they go to a cell with Buba Warrior as a roommate.
