The presidential jet set

The presidential jet set may be a jetting around a little less or paying more to do so because of new ethics reform legislation.

WASHINGTON (CNN) - The ethics reform legislation recently passed by Congress will make it more expensive for the 2008 White House hopefuls to travel the country in order to campaign.  CNN's Chief National Correspondent John King has the story.

    Well I think that it's a great idea. These presidental hopefuls get alot of money from people towards their campaign, so I say let them spend it on their own transportation from here to there. They haven't even been elected yet and here we go squandering the tax payers money.

    Which of these earth hugging candidates say they are concerned about the environment?

    Like most of Hollywood, they love to talk the talk but can never walk the walk. I for one, find it hard to take advice from, much less follow, this lead..

    Well, in my mind, if they want to fly private, they can PAY to fly private. Don't our elected officials get ENOUGH job-perks on the backs of taxpayers??

    When are we going to get a Presidential candidate that's more worried about the environment than his/her own ego?

    Where are you..? We need you!!
