The New Legislation Control Bill

When the only tool you have is a hammer, they say, every problem starts to look like a nail. When the only tool you have is legislation, every problem starts to look like a new bill to pass. We have to find a way to limit both houses of Congress so that they are not allowed to propose new legislation on an activity unless and until they see to it that current legislation addressing the same general topic is being fully and effectively enforced. Congress, both houses, loves nothing more than to pass yet another bill, giving it some snazzy name (almost never indicative of the actual effect of the bill) so that the members can return home and crow about passing this or that bill.

Look where it has gotten us. Both house will fight this initiative tooth and nail, if I read the character of Senators and Representatives correctly.
