A Challenge or Request to the Major Party Presidential Candidates

Given that all three of the major party presidential candidates are also sitting members of the US senate (and the only other officially running but mathematically eliminated candidate is in the US House), I will challenge them, or request, that they "put their money where their mouth is."

Instead of promising to fix things if elected, they should start the ball rolling by introducing the legislation now. I'd be much more impressed with a candidate who said "I believe that [whatever] is how to fix [problem of the day], so I've introduced legislation to do this" then one who says "If elected I will [whatever] to fix [problem of the day]."

Of course, I'm probably being an unrealistic idealist to think that any of the noticeable candidates would do such a thing. After all, why fix things as a senator when you can become the savior when president.
