Total BS. Massive numbers of people are flocking to the beltway because Uncle Sugar is where the money is and career opportunities are.
A “brain drain” from Congress? Oh, puh-leeze. What rubbish.
The country would be far better off with a 50% turnover every Congressional cycle.
Actually, it was the liberal governments with taxation up the wazoo in the 60’s that caused a brain drain far more reaching than just in medicine. They lost engineers, technical people, the wealthy and talented (including the Beatles and Stones) in that era. Frankly, if I was younger, I’d be looking towards this sort of thinking myself.
Their brains have long since been drained there on the Hill. Nothing left. The REAL intelligence is found among the American people — the ones who make the country run! Only the stupidest and dimmest bulbs are constantly trying to convince others of their superior intelligence. Those who are intelligent have nothing to prove.
Brain drain my butt, I’ve seen some of these wizards testify and all they can say is, “I don’t know, I wasn’t aware or What difference does it make.”
Loop holes to ensue.

Our lawmakers have brains?
We wouldn’t have Obamacare if there had not been a brain drain in Congress first.
