The founding fathers never thought our government should be an industry with its own life-long technocrats making it their living. In fact, they wanted robust debate in Congress, because they thought much debate would prevent Congress from passing too many laws, thereby maintaining a small and less intrusive Federal government. But now we have career politicians that live and die by the number of laws they pass, just so they can justify their existence on their resume. They can then use this padded resume to either get another job in government, or become a lobbyist who leaches off of the Federal government.
