Bobby Jindal: Make Congress part-time

Jindal said in an interview with Human Events.

“We used to pay farmers not to grow crops, let's pay congressmen to stay out of Washington, D.C.,. Mark Twain said that our liberty, our wallets were safest when the legislature's not in session.”

“Make them part-time, give them term limits. Don’t let them become lobbyists. When they have to live under the same rules and laws they pass for the rest of us, maybe you’d see some more common sense coming out of Washington, D.C.”

Probably the best sound advice from a politician. When Congress is in session they always find ways to spend our money. Make them part time and less money would be spent. There is no need to make them career politicians. Let these Congressmen and Congresswomen have a full time job outside of Washington and convene several times a year and on emergency basis to discuss ways to improve America.
