Trump's contract with American voter

President-Elect Donald Trump campaigned hard at the close of his campaign that he would "drain the swamp" in Washington DC.

In his Contract with the American Voter,  Trump committed to embark immediately on a plan for restoring honesty and accountability, and bringing change to Washington. The Contract proposed six measures to clean up the corruption and special interest collusion in Washington, DC. These are:
★ FIRST, propose a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress.
★ SECOND, a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce the federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health).
★ THIRD, a requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated.
★ FOURTH, a five-year ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service.
★ FIFTH, a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.
★ SIXTH, a complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.

REQUEST TO: Alabama legislative delegation in Washington, and other leaders in Alabama government and politics, and in the Alabama business, media, education and civic communities
PLEASE EXPRESS your views about cleaning up corruption and special interest collusion in Washington.

This request is with a view to educating Alabamians on the subject and how it bears on how well Congress and the rest of the Federal government perform their job for the American people.

UPDATE 11/19/16
I am an Alabamian and am pressing this in Alabama. I urge others to do similarly in their States. See The 2018 citizens' unity Congress.

  1. Lets hope he will follow through on his promises. I am not sure the American public can tolerate another shagging by another rich and privileged spinner.
