I just want to throw out an idea, no taxation without representation.

Since Congress saw fit some 90+ years ago to limit the number of representatives to 435, the population of the United States has grown quite a bit. As we approach a population of 300 Million citizens, each representative will represent 690,000 citizens. This is not fair.

We shouldn’t expect a representative to represent more than 150,000 citizens. I think a target of 100,000 citizens per representative is a reasonable number. The Constitution set a lower limit (30,000) but never set an upper limit. I think it is time to set one.

More on this later.
