Rotating Congressional Committee Control

Many of the real answers to our political problems lie in breaking the two-party system. But since we’re likely to be stuck with it for a long time to come, here’s one idea to spread power out.

Rotate party control of congressional committees every two years, regardless of which party is in power.

Just swap one Repub for one Dem (or vice versa) every two years to shift the balance of power.

Also, split the committees being controlled by each as evenly as possible by influence and power. If there are 30 commitees, 15 of them should be controlled by each party, alternating from the most to least powerful.

The party in power would get dibs on the most powerful committee, and any odd one out, if there isn’t an even number of them (the 31st one, for example).
