Bob Corker thinks the way to fix the mess in Washington is to tie Federal spending to GDP. Nice idea. But the incentives are all wrong. I think making Congress Critters and staff compensation proportional to real GDP would be a better idea. It puts the incentives in the right direction and the right place at a much lower cost. Of course it might need a war clause so that they don't decide to try to make their point by cutting defense too much. But other than that I think my idea is better. And how do we prevent a pump and dump operation? Eternal vigilance.
