    Let's not forget it was the teachers' unions that forced out the previous mayor when he dared to let the school chancellor try to clean up the DC schools and actually put the needs of students ahead of the needs of the union.

    Sometimes I wonder if we would not be better off if it was required that half the politicians,(at all levels) have no more than a high school education with a advance study in common sense???

    As one who lives in the DC Metro region, I can tell you first hand that DC is a joke, not only with Gray and his corrupt administration, but the Cosby Kid Reject City Council as well. All of them have skeletons revealed from their proverbial closets. I don't look highly on Congress, but with the constant string of excessive spending and corruption that still plagues this city, I say revoke Home Rule. DC has only gone downhill since then. I say residents of DC should be folded into MD and the District should be a federal one with no local governments.

    Corruption has always been at the city, state, and national level.if you want to stop it or at least reduce it, people need to grow a spine, educate themselves, and demand that these officials pay for their crimes.

    We have a similiar problem here in Florida, with a state legislature that has been under complete Republican control since 1996.

    You have a point, but Florida is doing better than democrat-dominated states like Illinois, Michigan, New York, Rhode Island, California, and Connecticut.

    There are no real differences in people because of a party name. They are all mostly selfish and lookout for self. We send new people to Congress with great ideas but those we keep there two long make them change their minds to coincide with the leadership or they get nothing done. The answer is term limits!

    It might just be time to establish a wistle blower rewards program? These people have abused their constituents since the beginning of time and it is way past time that it stop. Triple the prison sentence, loss of all retirements, no exceptions. Of all the people in this country, these are the ones that we should all be able to trust. I believe that they have a fiduciary responsibility to their constituents and should be held accountable to the fullest and highest degree for ANY abuse.( Lock their asses up untill the sun no longer shines when they screw over the people).
