Reform needed to rebuild citizens' trust

Congress must approve three reforms to restore the trust of Americans in the federal government. They are:

First -- pass two constitutional amendments requiring term limits for members of Congress and a single six-year term for presidents.

Second -- require senators, representatives, presidents, vice presidents, cabinet members, White House advisers, and high-ranking policymakers to release their yearly their tax returns for the federal and state governments.

The reforms would provide solid evidence that the legislative and executive branches represent the concerns of all Americans and not a select group of corporations, national organizations, wealthy Americans and unions. The United States would, once again, become a nation of problem solvers and a beacon of hope for the human race.
