How To Solve The Federal Deficit Problem

I saw this on facebook today and found the thought amusing enough to share. It's elegant in its simplicity but will unfortunately never happen because of that very quality (simplicity), and because it might actually work and that is strictly against Congressional policy. It would also hold Congress accountable for its own incompetence, something those self-serving assholes will never ever do. Ever.

"Pass a law mandating that should the deficit ever exceed 3% of the GDP then all sitting members of Congress would become permanently ineligible for re-election."

Problem solved. Of course there'd have to be an exception written in there for times of war but that should only apply to war to defend the US or answer direct threats, it should not apply to wars on abstract concepts, wars on sovereign countries who pose no threat to us and made no threats against us, nor wars waged to meddle in the affairs of other countries.
