Term Limits

Club for Growth strongly supports term limits for Members of Congress. Currently, the culture in Washington encourages members to develop long-term relationships with lobbyists and bureaucrats. This collusion ultimately swells the size and power of government. Term limits, while not a panacea for all the ills of Congress, would break this collaboration. It would help force Congress to be more accountable and keep members near to the residents of their districts rather than focusing on building special interests constituencies from which they can draw money and attention. Term limits will bring much needed reform to Washington and guarantee an infusion of new blood for the citizen legislature our Founding Fathers crafted.

One way a candidate can demonstrate his or her support for term limits is by signing the U.S. Term Limits pledge, which requires candidates to commit to co-sponsoring and voting for the U.S. Term Limits amendment of 3 House terms and 2 Senate terms and no longer term limit.
