“Shorten Senators term to 4 years, or better yet, 2. Shorten representatives terms to 1 year.”
Oh, great, instead of doing anything else, once elected a brand new House member would go to their swearing in ceremony and then return home to start campaigning for their re-election 11 months later.
If anything I would keep all house races to the “off years” - the non-Presidential-election years - and increase the terms to four years - almost insuring the exec and the majority in the legislature will be on opposite sides of the aisle; increasing the chances of both grid-lock and only essential compromise; not bad things to have when what you want is limited government.
Interesting idea. Good to encounter someone else at least willing to think about improvements.
