Congressman Tim Ryan (D – OH 17th District): “Horse and Buggy”

Another installment from the GOTW Road Team. Congressman Tim Ryan was generous enough to give us a few minutes of time; the Congressman’s had a long career in public service, and has been an up-and-coming Member of the House since 2003. He thinks that a national holiday might be the way to go, and wants to preserve the collective ritual of everyone voting together. When we asked him the question, he seemed to have some idea- check out the clip for his answer.
We don’t generally travel by horse and buggy (or wagon, or carriage) anymore, of course. Most of us travel with 160 horses under the hoods of our cars, or by public transport. Makes us wonder: does the reasoning behind Tuesday voting still hold up?
