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. 

At the heart of the problem in Washington is the thriving – and anchored in place – political class. To put it bluntly, many career politicians put the wishes of the well-connected D.C. establishment ahead of the interests of the people they were elected to serve.

Fortunately, there is a solution: Term Limits. 

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.  

The American people have lost faith in their government. And rightly so. It is well past time to change the status quo in D.C. and turn the ship around. Term limits will do just that. They are a common-sense solution that will break the gridlock, end Washington politics-as-usual, and help restore the citizen legislature our founding fathers envisioned. 

It’s time for public officials to start making a difference, not a career.
