It's Time for Congressional Term Limits
Since the government shutdown began, we’ve seen plenty of posturing and finger-pointing – but not much common-sense. Sadly, this is the new normal in American politics.
Term limits will spell the end of politics-as-usual in Washington, help restore a citizen legislature, and encourage public officials to do what’s best for their constituents. Overwhelmingly supported by 82% of Americans, term limits are a solution consistent with the will of the people and the intent of our founders.
The government shutdown is further proof that term limits are more important now than ever. That is one reason why last Tuesday I introduced a Constitutional amendment that limits Members of Congress to six terms in the House of Representatives and two in the Senate.
