Controlling Congress is a fine idea if you can figure out a way to do it. Just remember that changing the power of Congress would require the consent of Congress itself and possibly a change in the Constitution. When has any body agreed to lessening its power?
Go read some of the earlier posts in this thread bemoaning problems with local governments. People giving up local power in favor of centralization is pretty common. And Congress does it every time they blame the President for a problem, indirectly telling people that it’s the President, not they, who should be responsible.
But, yes, going the other direction, to less centralization, isn’t common at all.
