This is a great idea whose time came a long time ago. Bar coded politicians can be more easily tracked to see who has invested in them and allows the public to view their market cap and ownership. Great idea! Congress Members To Wear Barcodes So Lobbyists Can Scan Prices, Self-Checkout WASHINGTON, D.C.—In a move to make purchasing congresspeople easier and faster for lobbyists, Congress voted to approve a new measure that calls for congresspeople to wear barcodes on their foreheads so lobbyists, activists, and corporations can simply scan them and self-checkout. Self-checkout machines will be installed at all exits of the Capitol Building, so once they've added congresspeople to their cart, lobbyists can pay right on the way out. "Purchasing congresspeople used to be a time-consuming, expensive process," said a Planned Parenthood representative. "Now, we can simply walk through Congress, scan all the congresspeople that are for sale, and checkout without having to interact with any humans." "We hate humans---like, a lot," the PP rep added. One major military-industrial complex lobby group, Americans For Bigger Bombs, said they are also in support of the new move.
