Zero chance regulation will do anything. You're locking the barn door after the horse has already gone on to have a family and kids and die of old age. There is no politician who can withstand the sheer incentive power of being in office.

Short of making their lives absolutely nightmarish--which you probably won't do since they're behind thick layers of aides and interns who will take abuse so they don't have to--there is not hope of this changing in the direct ways hoped for. Something systematic has to fail in an unexpected way that renders old incentives inert.
