My God...I just gave neo96 a flag for one of his posts.
I did it though, because I think it's a great idea. It will force congressmen to demand higher speed internet connections for their districts. It
will allow congressmen to spend time in their districts to be better representatives!
It would save, literally, millions of dollars in transportation costs. You don't think congress pays for all those flights out of their pockets, do
Imagine being able to go to your representatives office and giving him an earful rather than complaining to an intern in Washington.
Ultimately though, I imagine this is just a way to give congress their voice back. A way to let them vote on important matters in the event that they
miss their flight or something silly like that. It certainly wouldn't be an exodus from Washington, though...if it were, I wouldn't be terribly
disappointed. They might actually do their jobs.
