Why Can’t Government be more Like Cost Effective Businesses … GOP Lawmaker US Rep. Steve Pearce (R-NM) Wants a ‘Virtual Congress’ with Telecommuting plan
VITUAL CONGRESS IS A START, TERM LIMITS SHOULD BE NEXT …
US Rep. Steve Pearce (R-NM) has introduced a resolution that would allow lawmakers to be able to hold hearings, debate and vote on legislation virtually from their district offices. What, our government save money and actually use the 21st century technology at their hands? The barrier to this resolution would be the lawmakers. How are they going to be able to go to the DC parties and be wined and dined by K Street lobbyists if they are at home? Of course the resolution makes all the sense in the world, make the politicians accountable to their folks back home. Imagine Representatives of the people that are actually available to the people. The people of their district should have more access to them than the lobbyists. What a novel concept.
Rep. Steve Pearce (R-N.M.) wants to create a “virtual Congress,” where lawmakers would leverage videoconferencing and other remote work technology to conduct their daily duties in Washington from their home districts.
Under a resolution Pearce introduced on Thursday, lawmakers would be able to hold hearings, debate and vote on legislation virtually from their district offices.
While Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer may have recently nixed the Web company’s work-from-home policy to boost its performance, Pearce believes a remote work arrangement may benefit Congress and make lawmakers more accountable to folks in their home districts.
Pearce says the resolution would eradicate the need for members to jet back and forth from their districts to Washington each weekend. This would allow lawmakers to spend more time with their constituents rather than the armies of lobbyists from K St., he argues.
Imagine the costs saved by not having to pay for the endless air travel expenses back and forth from DC to their districts? Imagine if politicians used the very technology that every business pretty much uses today for cost savings measures? Imagine if politicians were home more than in DC and more accountable to their constituents, rather than lobbyists on K street? One has to ask the obvious question, with all of the technological innovations that have taken place just in the past 5 years, how come our government does not take advantage of them and lower the tax burden to “We the People”?

THE AUDACITY OF GROPE … TSA FIASCO #30.
Since when do we provide criminals more rights in the Unites States than we do people just trying to get on a plane?
How many of these stories do we need to hear in order for these TSA assaults to stop! Cathy Bossi, a 3year breast cancer survivor and a flight attendant who has worked the past 28 years for US Air was forced to show her prosthetic breast during a pat-down. WTF!!!
In early August Bossie was walking through security when she says she was asked to go through the new full body-scanners at Concourse “D” at Charlotte Douglas International.
She reluctantly agreed. As a 3-year breast cancer survivor she says she didn’t want the added radiation through her body. But, Bossi says she did agree.
Obama’s NASA Mission to Mecca … Charles Bolden, NASA Administrator Tells Al Jazeera that Obama Charged Him to Reach Out to Muslim World to Feel Good About Their Contributions to Science
BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA … ALL THE WRONG STUFF …
When will the nonsense end with this President? BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA’S NASA MISSION TO MECCA .
You ever wonder why things are as screwed up in America as they are under the Barack Hussein Obama Presidency? All we need to do is look at NASA administrator Charles Bolden comments regarding NASA’s purpose. Obama has brought us an immigration policy where he refuses to follow the rule of law against illegals, an economic stimulus plan that has failed to stimulate anything and now has NASA performing a feel good Muslim outreach. UNREAL!
FIRST OF ALL WHAT IS A NASA OFFICIAL DOING TALKING TO AL JAZEERA!!! Is suddenly this media outlet considered main stream media and not a media vehicle for terrorism. What is going on with this President!
Under the Obama administration, the primary mission of NASA is to reach out to Muslim nations to make them feel better about their histotic contributions to science? ARE YOU JOKING! Not only should it not be a primary goal, it should not be any goal of NASA to do such political diplomacy. Bolden claimed his “foremost” mission as the head of America’s space exploration agency is to improve relations with the Muslim world.
NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said in a recent interview that his “foremost” mission as the head of America’s space exploration agency is to improve relations with the Muslim world.
