107. There really needs to be a law about redistricting
I use to live in Pennsylvania and they did some seriously whack things with redistricting like splitting up Philadelphia so the districts would reach far out into the suburbs and rural parts of the surrounding counties. I remember one district in the Philly area with a 'lollipop' section that was used to lump a very dem/jewish neighborhood in with the bumpkins from Upper Bucks county.

Redistricting laws need to be set to certain areas. Districts should be created in a way that have defined borders and shapes. End of discussion. That's the only way we're going to save some of these states and get a fair representative for the people who live there.
