Term Limits

One would hope that our elected officials would have the good sense to step away when their time has come, but too often we have people that we elect that are seduced by either the allure of power or the prestige of their positions. We the people have entrusted our representatives with their responsibilities and they owe it to us to step away and allow new ideas, new talent, and a more representative body to serve the people.

I support term limits.  Just as the President is limited to two 4-year terms, members of Congress should be limited as well.  A good starting point would be two 6-year terms for Senate and five 2-year terms for members of the House of Representatives.  This would give our elected officials sufficient time to try to enact the policies that they support, but also refresh the members of the body politic to ensure that the interests of the people are always placed first.
