Our CongressCritters work too hard, sacrificing time and other resources they need to raise funds and to campaign for perpetual reelection. Here is the solution. It may be the last, and the shortest, piece of legislation enacted in recent memory or in the future. It will be truly historic.

Comprehensive legislation is a, if not the, current librul demand. We have had comprehensive health care reform — an historic accomplishment that managed to be simultaenously comprehensive and incomprehensible. It had to be passed so that we could find out what was in it. We are still learning what it means, as various regulatory entities and the President change it, regardless of whether such changes are permitted by statute.

Libruls have been demanding comprehensive immigration reform which, if passed, is likely to have the same “advantages.” In an article titled A Modest Proposal for Really Comprehensive Legislation, I offered a few suggestions. I now see the errors of my ways. My earlier proposal would have reduced the current legislative process slightly further into absurdity than it had already sunk, while retaining the illusion that our CongressCritters might be doing something (we rarely know what) useful. The best and last thing that the Congress should do is to pass the legislation offered here. Although my proposed legislation is short and easily understood, it nevertheless preserves — and indeed enhances — the opportunity for surprise when subsequent legislative actions are taken. I have even saved our busy CongressCritters and their overworked staffs the burden of writing it.
