immovable_object writes "I had an idea on how to 'fix' Congress that I wanted to run by the readers of Slashdot. Currently, special interests attempt to monopolize the time of our members of congress, artificially influencing their views, and turning Congress into a special interest haven. If we could expand congress by 5-10x, or 2000 Senators, and 5000 House members, I believe that Congress would return to representing the will of the people rather than the special interests. After all, buying off 1500 Senators is far more difficult than buying off 150 senators. Additionally, I think this would move the US closer to a Democracy than the current Republic. What does the Slashdot reader community think?"
