Another great idea: Part time congress

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.

    Nah. I’d rather they be limited to only being able to legislate for 3 months of the year and be required to spend the other 9 months providing oversight of all the executive branch agencie- i.e. EPA/AG/DHS to determine how/if they are enforcing/adminstering the laws/programs that congress has already passed.

    That would DEFINITELY work as far as I’m concerned!
