1. Lobbyists should be required to spend lots and lots of money sending members of Congress on all kinds of trips outside the country. That way they won't be in Washington increasing our taxes, redistributing wealth, and undermining the war on terrorism.
2. Congress should not be permitted to meet more than six months a year. That way the state governments might have something to do.
3. Congress should pass a constitutional amendment, along the lines first proposed by Milton Friedman, limiting federal spending to a percentage of the gross domestic product. With less money to spend, there will be less opportunity for waste, fraud, and abuse of billions in taxpayer dollars, less earmarks, and less of a lot of things we don't need.
4. Congress should pass a constitutional amendment limiting their own terms. We might lose some real statesmen (although I have more fingers than there are statesmen), but if it sends Ted Kennedy back to Hyannis Port after more than 40 years in the Senate, it's worth it.
5. And when we're done reforming Congress, let's turn our attention to reforming the courts.
Sounds good to me. Reducing the government's power and spending. Right on!
