Washington, Nov.25 (ANI): Louisiana's Indian-origin Governor Bobby Jindal wants members of Congress to stay out of Washington D.C. and be home more often.
"We used to pay farmers not to grow crops, let's pay congressmen to stay out of Washington, D.C.," Politico quoted Jindal, as saying in an interview with Human Events.
He added: "Mark Twain said that our liberty, our wallets were safest when the legislature's not in session."
Jindal, himself a former congressman, said once elected, many lawmakers become entrenched in Washington and become the very people they once campaigned against.
"Make them part-time, give them term limits. Don't let them become lobbyists. When they have to live under the same rules and laws they pass for the rest of us, maybe you'd see some more common sense coming out of Washington, D.C.," Jindal said. (ANI)
