One simple way to help get money out of politics is to cancel all retirement programs for all members of Congress.
In my opinion, serving in Congress was never intended to become a life long profession. Why should we provide retirement or any other benefits after service is rendered? Take the incentive out of career service so we can get some new blood in Congress constantly!
Trust me, it isn't Michael Moore or any of his Hollywood pals.

I'm having a problem remembering something that was on one of Thom's shows that happened in 2011 or 2010, I believe. He interviewed a fellow who was a documentary filmmaker who had financed a project with credit cards. The project went in the tank and he was stuck. He then found strategies in dealing with banks by telephone and subsequently wrote a book about it. If anyone remembers the name of the book and/or the author, I would appreciate it. thanks.
