Term Limits Are Unnecessary August 21, 2015

SHOT:  Dr. Milton Friedman’s explanation for why we need not elect “the right people” to change government.
CHASER:  Warren Buffet’s idea for balancing the budget. (I think Buffet’s approach is unconstitutional–since running for Congress is a constitutional right–but the same policy goal could be ensured by a law which docks the benefits, pay, and pensions of Congress for non-compliance.)
HANGOVER:  The real trick, however, is incentivizing politicians to vote for this self-punishing law in the first place.
