i personally think that we have a Congress that long ago outlived its usefullness. We don't need a full time Congress anymore. With today's technology, all of its business could be completed in a few weeks time over the internet, without the members even going to Washington. This would be far less expensive and would limit the members ability to engage in mischief and inventing ways to waste our money. Of course, this would only be possible if we had a President whose power was also limited and wasn't creating laws himself without any authority, as we have going on right now.
