This answer has no specifics on what executive actions you would take, or what actions you would rescind in exchange for Congress giving in.

We need specifics to evaluate the likelihood of success. We can help you iterate and provide new ideas if we know what plans you've already developed.

Could you give us one example of something you would do?

As President, you would have a range of unilateral powers at your disposal to implement reforms and gain political leverage.

You could offer clemency or pardon Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden, and other whistleblowers. You could require radical transparency from government contractors. You could pursue federal-state, public-private partnerships to incentivize public and private experiments in anti-corruption reforms across the country and beyond.

What executive orders have you drafted?

What beneficial-but-unnecessary executive orders could you issue and promise to rescind in exchange for a recalcitrant Congress passing your essential reforms?
