“We need to do away with the seniority system [in Congress] altogether. Why should Congress operate like a union?”
When you think about it, Congress does operate like a labor union. Seniority rules over ability or experience in a given area. That's how some of the least qualified Congresscritters end up on various committees even though they may have no knowledge about whatever the committee is supposed to be handling. Worse, these know-nothings sometimes end up as the chairman of the committee. How is that supposed to be in the best interests of the nation?
