Term Limits

Term limits are strongly needed 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. Term limits of 3 House and 2 Senate terms 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.
