To put that in context, the city of Baltimore, MD (pop. 621K) has about 3,400 police officers and DC (pop. 646K) has about 3,800 police officers.
    You have to reward the one who give you the cash. In any other line of work it would be called bribes with jail time.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Yep, a good clue is - why would anyone spend 100X (or far more) what a job pays annually just to apply for it?

    Exactly.

    A strong no vote from me.
    I would vote no.Bills should be one subject at a time and those voting for the bill should actually be the ones reading the entire bill and the bill should be posted online at least 72 hours or longer depending on the size of the bill before it is voted on.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Simple common sense: Any bill that is too voluminous to read in a reasonable time--VOTE NO!!!
