(free mailings, gym, drivers)reduce pay to encourage

contributions) coming from the reps. district, and 66% of
the time must be spent in reps. district to know what the
I do see problems. What time in the year will they be in
session? NO problem with limited time in D.C. It has
been shown that they fight, delay, and confab too much.

economy has improved when they are out of D.C.,
philibustering or delaying passage of unnecessary
legislation(i.e., more gun laws when we have 10,000
on the books that aren’t enforced[see Clinton admin.
