Congressional Cuts — Part 2 of 3: Reduced Hours

Being a Congressperson is supposed to be a part-time job, so let’s force it back to being one!

Key Points

  • Having a part-time legislature is very common in the United States and is what the founders envisioned for Congress.

  • Limiting the days, hours per day, and times that Congress can meet will force our representatives to be efficient.

  • Part-time legislatures have exponentially less costs than full-time ones because the latter feel they must always justify their existence.
