hm.. okay, I see what you mean. Well, first, take the money out of
politics -- publicly funded elections. Second, provide room and board
for representatives while serving in washington. third, pay them the

improve the situation for their constituency because they reap the
rewards of that as well. I know its totally flawed and wacky, but hey,
I like it! ;)
