U.S. House candidate Grant Bosse would like to see Congress go back to basics.
The former legislative aide and radio news anchor wants Congress to retain a greater role in the use of military force, echoing the idea the Founding Fathers laid out in the Constitution.
Bosse also wants members of Congress to end their practice of earmarking federal money to projects back home and instead file legislation for such work, creating more transparency in the process, he said. Earmarking has been around as long as Washington and Jefferson, but only in the past decade has Congress expanded its use to nearly every member.
