Cleveland best model for D.C. politicians

Grover Cleveland was a reform president who restored honesty and efficiency to the federal government.

Cleveland opposed lobbyists, but Congress wrote laws to benefit their campaign contributors, such as allowing Union veterans to collect pensions that were not disabled or allowing widows of veterans to collect pensions after they had remarried. (Today, Congress passes laws to benefit their campaign contributors).

Cleveland read the bills and vetoed the ones with dishonest claims.

In the 2012 general election, Americans must elect a president, senators and representatives who shall model their political careers after Cleveland.
