To the Editor:
The nation’s legislature is providing the U.S. with a great opportunity to cut the deficit.
The members grow increasingly partisan which means our two congressional bodies are no longer speaking across party lines or debating. They vote as a single unit, in “lock step,” so ordered by the party leaders.
Obviously, votes could be made on a group basis, just count the party members present and the janitor could be assigned the task of giving the number to whomever calls roll!
Using such a procedure, the members could all be furloughed without pay. Now, wouldn’t that be a perfect way to conduct a more efficient and economic government?
