Term Limits

February 02, 2012

The vote was on whether Congress would adopt a Constitutional Amendment limiting the number of terms for Members of Congress. The conservative vote was "Aye".

It is telling that the senators who voted against term limits have been in the Senate for an average of 13.6 years compared to just 6.4 years for those who support them. The longer people are in Congress, the more power they get, and the more they lose touch with the voters who elected them.
