Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal in an interview with Human Events about his book, Leadership and Crisis, expounding on an idea from that book said that members of Congress should be part-time.

When they have to live under the same rules and laws they passed for the rest of us, maybe you’d see some more common sense coming out of Washington, D.C. Instead you got a permanent governing political class.

Amen to that!  Part I of that interview is below:
