Now we're talking. Move the Congress to Denver.
Congressional Quarterly's Craig Crawford has a novel solution to the whole dust-up over whether Speaker Nancy Pelosi can have a bigger plane for her longer nonstop flights to San Francisco than did ex-Speaker Denny Hastert.
Convene Congress in Denver.
Yup, he really said that:
As population shifts further and further west, it does not seem fair for so many lawmakers to have such trouble getting back to their constituents. Why not a summer home for Congress in Denver? ...
The Constitution does not require Congress to meet in Washington. And wouldn’t it be nice to share those lobbyist expense accounts with restaurants in the heartland?
Hot damn. Who needs the DNC Convention when you can move Congress?
Your Personal Note:
Why not expand congress to 1300 seats, and have it convene regionally, like various circuit courts?
