Add election time limits....90-120 days is enough, add 'question time' to make the POTUS, and their policies, accountable and we have the semblance of a government that works.

While we're at it, get rid of the silliness of the archaic 'electoral colleges' and the mid terms should be changed to match the general elections, that would avoid the constant campaigning.
OK so if you 'publicly' fund elections who decides who gets funded and who is essentially silenced?
