- The U.S. House of Representatives districts should be drawn by non-partisan commission, not legislatures.
- The U.S. House of Representatives should be elected using multi-seat, proportional districts. (I also wrote an earlier post here.)

- The Federal Election Commission should ban private funding of elections, substituting comprehensive public funding.
- The U.S. Speaker of the House should not have the power to delay a vote on a motion if a substantial minority of Representatives desire the vote. (abolish the "Hastert rule")
- The U.S. Senate should abolish the filibuster.
- Congressional pay should be suspended if Congress is unable to pass a budget.
- The U.S. Congress should only be allowed to pass a spending bill if it contains a suitable increase to the debt ceiling.
- The U.S. Congress should be required to take an immediate up-or-down vote if the President proproses raising the debt ceiling.
- U.S. Supreme Court justices should be limited to 18-year terms (also here).
- The U.S. Supreme Court should no longer have the power of constitutional review (also this, this, and this).
- Amendments to the U.S. Constitution should require a substantially lower threshold for passage.
- The U.S. federal government should not use block grants to administer federal programs.
- The U.S. should increase the federal gasoline tax.
- School funding should be collected and dispensed at the state, not local, level.
I'm sure there a lot more fun topics on general government reform, but these are the ones that occurred to me off the top of my head. Please post additional ones in the comments.
