I oppose H.R. 530: Government Waste Reduction Act of 2013 You really need a bill to shelf non primary problem bills, until such time as you have solved the primary problems in the United States with the banksters vs the monetary system and have spare time yourself again, then bring them out. Renaming buildings and post offices, bills for individual immigration cases, etc.
