Congressional reform is overdue to combat the elitist and entitlement attitude. Outside the DC beltway there is a different set of values with respect to the role of government in our lives. Perhaps 3,000-5,000 part time members of the House would reflect true American ideals.

The constitution requires that Representatives should represent no more that 30,000. Maybe we should insist we go back to that level.
