How to "fix" America in one move...

I have thought about dozens of things that could make America functional again as a governing concept...things like term limits, public funding of elections, public funded healthcare options, etc....but one thing can make it all moot over night.

A requirement that the Congress - House AND Senate - operate under a wealth cap - similar to the idea of a salary cap in sports terms, but in this case an overall Congressional mandate to reflect the distribution of wealth in the country through the make up of the Congress.

The chances of this happening? Absolutely ZERO...the power structure of this country would NEVER allow themselves to be removed from power in such a drastic and immediate way...but if the required congress had only 5% or fewer millionaires, there would be a whole new outlook on EVREYTHING the next day...
