Return government to the people


In this age of convoluted tax rules that require tax preparers for the vast majority of the tax-paying public; what possible sense would you expect to make out of a complicated one with multiple sources of income like Mitt Romney's?

In 1968, when his father advocated reporting income for the previous 10 years, the forms were simple enough I could file for my husband and myself and our teenage son.

How can we return to the sustainable solutions needed for our overwhelming problems when cities all over the nation are going bankrupt because we've allowed the lobbies for special interests to control our legislature?

We must return the legislative branch to one accountable for the laws it passes

It should have to abide by them and if it weren't a lifetime job it might again return to being a government of the people, by the people and for all the people.
