Politicians' bad return on investment

Published: August 12, 2013

What direction are the politicians taking this country? What have they actually accomplished this past year? What have been the results of their actions? How have they helped people?

Ask your politician to provide you with a written plan for the next session, with dates and actual accomplishments, and continue this after each session. Politicians spend too much time talking. They need to ask about how we can be helped by them, achieving integrity, accountability and trust in their actions, starting with town hall and business meetings. Too many politicians are satisfied with actions and results that support lobbyists, re-election and greed. It's time for them to be accountable for their actions.

I'm not aware of any business that could be successful with a return on investment like what's being achieved by our current politicians.
