LAW REVIEW AND CORRECTION:
The House of Representatives shall establish a Law Review Committee. This committee shall include forty by-Partisan American citizens per state selected by lottery drawing of willing participants. This Committee shall select 10 percent of its members as Governing Board. This committee shall review and assess LAWS considering what a prudent person would consider unfair financial advantage for commercial enterprise, misuse of nonprofit status, infringements on State Rights, infringements on Civil Rights, legislation reducing Tax Liabilities and Tax Codes irregularities considered to be loop holes for a preferred class, group or industry.
This Committee shall correct the inequality of earnings considering all monies gained through labor, investment, gambling and betterment of birth to be on an equal footing.

Like all other commonwealth law countries, a looser pay law shall be passed to reduce the nuisance law suits forcing higher insurance rates harming our country.
Congressional Reform Act 2020 Article 3 provides a law review committee charged with the task of removing years of legislation designed to financially benefit special interest Corporations and Industries at the detriment of the American public. The Reagan tax adjustment on excessive earnings from 70% to 28% under the guise of Trickle-down economics have failed creating a two class society with the upper 1% now owning 40% of our countries wealth, 50% of our countries stocks, controlling our media and being the financial benefactors for our elected. Hospitalization should not require a person to sell their home to pay a hospital bill. For our country to survive we need fair taxing codes for all American citizens, for profit and nonprofit corporations.
EXAMPLE CORPORATE WELFARE:
Energy Corporation earning 17 billion in profit excluded from paying Federal Income tax due preferential tax codes.
EXAMPLE CORPORATE PROTECTIONISM:
Pharmaceutical companies charging United States citizens three times more for prescriptions than charged for drugs in foreign countries.
