Do We Really Need 435 Congressman and 100 Senators?
Why do we need 435 Representative and 100 Senators as Washington Congress members, each with staff and office costs? Congressmen serve only one purpose: they serve to block one other side. Couldn’t we save a lot of money with 53 Congress members blocking one another??
Yes, we need two competitive parties (and less corruption). Single-party rule and partisanship invites abuse.
We just don’t need so much of it.
Q: What do the Congressional Republicans of 2014-5 and the Ku Klux Klan (or Apartheid) have in common?
A: No Jews, No Blacks.
(No Muslims, No Hindus, and No Atheists, either. And these are not even their biggest electoral challenges, which are Hispanics.)
The Republican party is not (I hope) racist, but this is not a good situation if they want to win elections.
