He seems to think that legislators actually legislate. How quaint! Someone needs to tell him that it’s not 1920 anymore.
My modest proposal would involve tying funding of federal agencies to quantifiable metrics of their success. For example, funding to financial agencies should not go up following a financial crisis, as is currently the practice. It would also involve making it possible to fire agency staff if the metrics were not achieved.
It’s probably better to create an aristocracy of assholes, as he suggests.
