Here is an idea. Why does each member of the House and Senate have their own individual offices and associated expenses. Why not have a pool of support employees that can answer to multiple persons. Say one secretary for 5 or 6. Cut employees and office and supply expenses. It is like hundres of individual practices! We could save a ton!
