I spent over an hour listening to C-SPAN when Perot was giving the committee his lesson on common sense--something that quite a few sitting on the committee seem to be lacking! The junior congressmen and senators are given very short shrift.
If my representative is treated like a lost child for two, four, six years, how long will it take that person to gain seniority and be able to say something that means something to me? The rules should be changed to put all House and Senate members on an equal footing.
Power plays should be out. Cut the staffs! Common sense should be in.
