    Many, if not all states require their candidates for elected office to file a Net Worth statement before an election. I believe presidential wannabe's usually do the same; not sure about Trump but I think it's pretty well documented that he knows where his next meal is coming from. Wouldn't it be a great idea if they would be required them to do the same after they leave office. If nothing else, it would give the IRS something to do when they pass a flat tax system rather than the cluster **** that our present tax code represents. There might be a few red flags raised when an ex elected official goes from Joe the Plumber to Joe the billionaire?

    What is the old saying, "figures don't lie but, liars figure".

    One number that doesn't lie is the number 1000. The number of seats lost nationwide by Democrats during Obama's tenure.
