Rep. Holding introduces term limits Amendment
Today, Congressman George Holding (NC-02) introduced an amendment to the United States Constitution imposing term limits on Congress. The amendment would limit U.S. Senators to two six-year terms and members of the U.S. House of Representatives to six two-year terms.
“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,” said Congressman Holding. “Term limits will put an end to politics-as-usual in Washington, help restore a citizen legislature, and encourage elected officials to do what’s best for their constituents, instead of special interests.”
“It’s time for elected officials to start making a difference, not a career.”
