Nearly 200 years ago, Tom nailed the central problem of representative (windbag) government:

“If the present Congress errs in too much talking, how can it be otherwise in a body to which the people send 150 lawyers, whose trade it is to question everything, yield nothing, & talk by the hour? That 150 lawyers should do business together ought not to be expected.” –Thomas Jefferson, Autobiography, 1821
