Congress at work
Barney Frank is on a roll about limiting the income of business leaders.
After watching the law-making process on TV, and seeing that most of the lawmakers’ seats are empty, I believe that new rules should apply to Congress. If they are not in attendance, they shouldn’t be paid. Also they should have their benefits cut by the same percentage.
If facts are needed, “experts” should be imported to the committee meetings, that would allow the representatives of the citizens of America a much more efficient lawmaking operation. I realize that that would be a hardship on our representatives and senators, by cutting down their travel “fact finding” trips, but I believe the system would be much more efficient. After all, we didn’t elect them to spend much of their time traveling around the world.
Many of the abuses in our law-making system could be cut to a minimum by having term limits. Jack Lydon La Crosse, Wisconsin
