    I strongly support this. Of course,they would have to iron out problems that could arise. Pretty sure Obamacare would not have happened had the members of congress been back home and not in DC.

    Since the congress wouldn't need to travel as much, the bill should include a major pay cut....then see how many votes the bill gets.

    Bad things; create laziness possibly, no face to face contacts, lead to abuse in rules.

    I cant really think of anything wrong with getting politicians out of DC. Though I think it would be more inefficient as you get more done in face to face meetings.

    I'd rather they get less done.

    Not surprising, but certainly disgraceful, that politicians in general spend more time working on making their jobs easier and more profitable as opposed to helping people who actually want to work find gainful employment.

    True statement. Usually they are busy bickering over party lines and not helping the american people.

    Me too, but Id rather they get that 'less done', quickly, instead of dragging it out. Go to DC for one session every two years, and then go home.
