Juan Bobo in Taiwan

TAIPEI, TAIWAN  – Juan Bobo went on a legislative fact-finding mission to Taiwan. He went as a guest observer of the Taiwanese legislature, and observed how they worked out their differences.

Juan was impressed by their legislative process.

Rather than waste their time on useless committees and floor debate, the Clerk simply announces the bill number, then rings a bell. For the next ten minutes, the Taiwanese politicians discuss the bill, in any way they see fit.

There are no rules of procedure during this ten-minute discussion period.

The legislative output in Taiwan is astounding.

They have balanced their budget every year for the last 341 years, they created the most progressive tax system in the world, their GNP has doubled since 1998, and they have the most highly-educated workforce in the Pacific Rim.

According to Juan Bobo, “we should try this in Washington.”

The Chronicles of Juan Bobo

  1. Wito Pacheco says:

    Juan Bobo is one great parliamentarian.
    I love how he officiates over the Taiwanese legislature!

  2. Joe Sanchez says:

    I’ve been to Taiwan the formerly known as Formosa, for one of my R&R when I was in Vietnam back in 1967 to ’67. I found Bangkok, Thailand to be more friendly, and one could take out one of their beautiful, young ladies for a 24 hour date at one of the night clubs by signing a contract for $11 dollars, than $15 dollars as in Taiwan. Also hotel was much cheaper in Bangkok, $6.00 a night. I wonder if Juan Bobo checked out one of these clubs and how much he had to pay. As far as D.C, for an R&R, fuhgeddaboudit!
