Report: ending executive overreach; impose limits on spending
    Our Ideas
  • Put a stop to executive overreach. Subject agencies to more scrutiny from a Congress that writes clear laws and enforces clear lines of authority, a judiciary that expedites legal action against the executive branch, watchdogs that have more tools to root out fraud and abuse, and a public that knows what it has a right to know.
  • Rein in the regulators. Rewrite old laws so that regulations better reflect the will--and the input--of the people. Let's make the bureaucrats jump through more hoops--and spend less money--for a change.
  • Impose new limits on spending. Give Congress and the people the most say--and the final word--over who is spending their money, what it's being spent on, where it's being spent, when it's being spent, and why it's being spent.
  • Increase transparency for taxpayers. Make the government catch up with the times by publishing more data about how it does the people's business. Sunlight really is the best disinfectant.
