The Founding Fathers did not intend for our elected officials to make careers out of public office. We have term limits for our president and for good reason; we should apply those same principles to the Legislative Branch. There are politicians that have been in office longer than I have been alive.
Congressman Rod Blum established the first ever Term Limits Caucus in Congress. Support from other members to bring a vote to the floor to term limit themselves is disgracefully unpopular. If members aren’t willing to stand up next to Congressman Blum and put an end to Congressional jobs for life, we ought to vote them out.
