I agree, Terry. Congress can set a real life example for feds not only through legislative action, but also by personally engaging in remote work on a regular basis.

Less cost, more productivity, greater work-life balance, and let's not forget all the environmental benefits. Plus, fewer K Street corporate lobbyists foaming at the mouth for votes.

Congress needs to spend less time in Washington, and more time with the citizens who elected them in the first place. Such direct and sustained citizen engagement by lawmakers will only enhance the democratic process -- and, hopefully, rebuild the public trust.

As the late and great House Speaker Thomas "Tip" O'Neill used to say: All politics is local.
