Matt Glassman explores the potential consequences of PEG's idea. Another reason to consider greater funding for Congress:

I’d like to see legislative branch staffing beefed up a bit, but that’s mostly because I see it not only as a general good for a legislature, but also as a relative good for a legislature vis a vis the executive.
