Term Limits for Congress

Proposed text for the platform plank:

Representatives and Senators shall not hold office for more than 12 years.


The founding fathers vision for federal offices was a limited time in office.  Politicians need to make decisions based on making the country better, not staying in office.  Twelve years allows for 2 senatorial terms and 6 representative terms.  I believe they should be equal in length.

  • Texas Republican
