Reduce Congressional Representation

Our next general election each state should vote for only 4 representatives to Congress. All those currently in office would run against each other for the selection of 4 persons from each state. These 200 persons will be able to make healthy and visionary decisions that our present over 500 congress persons cannot. We would reduce our government operations cost by trillions over ten years. We would "furlough" all the congressional persons and their staffs that do not win the proposed election. The Supreme Court could make the deciision to call for the special election without the interference from Congress or the Senate, we would be back in the decision making business by next January. Our country cannot continue to survive with such indecisive leadership from the Democrats and Republicans, our first and foremost reduction in spending is by eliminating the cog in the wheel.

    • Mar 5 2013: With 150 persons, do you get decisions made or do you get the same "crybaby" responses we get from those who are elected to lead us?
