New law: If, in your district, there is a net gain in H1-B visa hires over net gain in non-H1-B visas hires. Then you cannot run for re-election. Problem solved. This would give the incentive to representatives to make sure Americans are being hired/retrained as needed. The status quo system we have now -- crony capitalism -- is geared toward looking after business and not the voter.
