Rob Andrews's Idea For Reform

January 5, 2011

Everyone in Washington has their ideas for how to reform a broken system. Rep. Rob Andrews's (D-N.J.) idea might be a bit on the extreme side.

Appearing on C-SPAN's Washington Journal this morning, Andrews suggested a way to streamline the Congressional schedule, which is habitually harried and overdue:

"Well, probably abolishing the Senate would help a lot, but I don't think we're going to do that. A lot of it is the Senate, as you know, moves as its own pace. So, we'll think that we're going to be prepared to do final passage of a piece of legislation and they're just not ready. That's what causes a lot of the scheduling chaos."

Andrews was probably less of a fan of abolishing the Senate when he ran for that august body in 2008. Andrews lost the Democratic primary to Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D) by a 59 percent to 35 percent margin.
