Washington (CNN) -- A handful of Republican senators have proposed a constitutional amendment to limit how long a person may serve in Congress.
Currently, there are no term limits for federal lawmakers, but Sen. Jim DeMint, R-South Carolina, and several of his colleagues are advocating that service in the Senate be limited to 12 years, while lawmakers would only be allowed to serve six years in the House.
"Americans know real change in Washington will never happen until we end the era of permanent politicians," DeMint said in a statement released by his office. "As long as members have the chance to spend their lives in Washington, their interests will always skew toward spending taxpayer dollars to buyoff special interests, covering over corruption in the bureaucracy, fundraising, relationship building among lobbyists, and trading favors for pork -- in short, amassing their own power."
Underline mine, it could not have been stated better. Every poll I have ever seen supports this. The standard cop out by every legislator is that they have term limit every time election comes up but we all know that's a crock of *censored*. Her's the the two part question I want to pose to my legisaltors.
A)Would you vote for amendment that is verwhelmingly supported by the US population?
B)Then why do we not have term limits?
