Via Human Events:
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has a great idea:
“Make [politicians] part-time. Give them term limits. Don’t let them become lobbyists. When they have to live under the same rules and laws they passed for the rest of us, maybe you’d see some more common sense coming out of Washington, D.C. Instead you got a permanent governing political class.”
It works in Texas. We only let our congress critters meet for a few months every two years. Of course the Constitution says the US Congress has to meet ever year but it says nothing about how long. In addition to that repeal amendment, let’s have one that says Congress only gets to meet for a few months then they have to go back home.
The less time they’re in DC the less time they have to mess things up.
