Repeal the 17th

If we repealed the 17th Amendment, Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein would be out!

They're the ones putting huge burdens in the form of unfunded mandates on the California legislature which they, in turn, make themselves unpopular by heaping on local governments, and eventually the taxpayer (rain tax!).

If they had to be accountable to their own legislature, they'd spend a lot more time at home, trying to solve local statewide problems, instead of coasting on their PR before an ignorant public.

What do you think?
