Comment: Why not just use the Internet to hold Congressional Meetings?

Why not just use the Internet to hold Congressional Meetings?

I think the Internet is great. But electronic voting is not very safe.

I think we should probably use the Internet to hold meetings. Congress could be just one big SKYPE meeting. Why are we flying these guys off to live in expensive DC when they are supposed to be representing the concerns of their state? I think these guys get too used to swishing around with the big boy players in DC and they change, especially when there are no term limits.

Skype is great. They could live at home with their family and attend all meetings from their home office. Make their hours and their schedule more like that of a normal person living in their state. You know, the normal person, if this was implemented, could easily come and visit their Congressman with their concerns.

Just a thought.
