Best idea I've read in a LONG time about reforming government

Good friend of this blog J.R. Hafer has posted some excellent thoughts on his own site this afternoon. The subject? The apathy of the American people about their government, and J.R. goes into a lot of what's causing it.

The entire thing is an excellent read, but I wanna focus y'all's attention on something that J.R. suggests in his essay. An idea that I've never thought of before but is instantly the very BEST suggestion that I've found in a long time and one of the greatest ever...

Politicians should be paid by their constituency and not the federal government. Their housing and benefits should be determined by the people they represent, and not the federal government.
Not just yes but HELL YES to this!

My mind is literally at a loss to come up with all of the crap that this would put an end to. Can I get an "amen"? :-)
