One of President Obama’s jokes at the recent Correspondents’ Dinner was along the lines of
I want to thank all the members [of Congress] who took a break from their exhausting schedule of not passing any laws to be here tonight.
So, says the Progressive-in-Chief, Government’s role is to pass more laws, to be more intrusive and controlling.
Others have an alternative mind set.
[A] part-time Congress. Cut their pay in half, cut their time in Washington in half, cut their staff in half, send them home. Let them get a job like everybody else back home has.
Then they could have a productively busy schedule.
