Lawmakers push for term limits - get the scum out of DC!



Bipartisan Group of Lawmakers Pushes for Term Limits

An old approach to draining the Washington swamp has become new again as members of Congress push for congressional term limits.

Term limits were one of the items proposed in the 1994 Contract with America, developed by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Although the issue was widely debated at the time, and term limits were imposed on some local and state elected positions, the bid to create term limits at the federal level never succeeded. (Very interesting, right?!)

Although some states sought to limit congressional terms, The Washington Post noted that a court rejected those efforts. Instead, imposing congressional term limits requires a constitutional amendment, which would require two-thirds passage in the bitterly divided houses of Congress and then ratification by 36 states. (WHY aren't they following the rules as originally established. That would settle the issue.)

However, Republican Rep. Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin is among those willing to make the attempt, according to The Hill. “People are hungry for a new generation of leadership in Washington, D.C. I certainly saw that in my campaign where my youth, far from being a hindrance, was an asset,” said Gallagher, 34.

Last week, Gallagher and a bipartisan group of congressmen who support term limits recruited an ally to their cause — President Donald Trump.  “I’m holding true to my commitment to bring some Wisconsin common sense to Washington, D.C. and change the way business gets done. Imposing term limits is one of first ‘Drain the Swamp’ measures I introduced in my first 100 days in office, and I appreciated the opportunity to discuss my resolution with President Trump. If we’re going to end the careerism that is infecting Washington, D.C., then implementing term limits and getting back to the citizen legislator model is a no-brainer,” Gallagher said in a statement on his website.
Trump later tweeted his support.  “I recently had a terrific meeting with a bipartisan group of freshman lawmakers who feel very strongly in favor of Congressional term limits,” Trump tweeted. “I gave them my full support and endorsement for their efforts.”

Republican Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania said he told Trump that there is a connection between length of service and corruption, according to the Washington Examiner. (https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/white-house/trump-gives-full-support-to-term-limits-push-in-congress)    “I made clear to the president that, as a former FBI special agent who oversaw the FBI’s Political Corruption Unit for the entire nation, I witnessed first hand an undeniable correlation between the length of time in office and the instances of corruption,” Fitzpatrick said. “The lines that were very bright for elected officials on day one in office were not so bright in year seven or eight, and even less so in years 15 or 20.”

Joining Fitzpatrick and Gallagher were Republican Rep. Jodey Arrington of Texas and Democrats Ro Khanna of California and Vincente Gonzalez of Texas.  Arrington said Trump was receptive to the proposal.  “I think he was encouraged that the new members of Congress — who came in when he did, on the same ticket — were expressing the sentiment of the electorate around this country,” Arrington said, according to KTTU-FM. “Eighty two percent of the American people believe that term limits would be best for this country.”

The proposal would limit service to 12 years, which would be two terms for senators and six terms for members of the House of Representatives. Sitting members of Congress would be exempt.
Gallagher said the issue crosses partisan lines ..."These are issues you can talk about with hardcore Bernie Sanders progressives and hardcore conservatives, and everyone starts speaking the same language,” Gallagher said.

Khanna said term limits would increase the diversity in Washington.  “Term limits worked really well in my state in the state assembly. It’s led to more people of color, more women and more young people getting the opportunity to serve,” Khanna said. “So that really is something I believe would be good at a federal level.”

  1. So you think that regularly replacing crooked politicians with new crooked politicians will somehow generate a more honest government? Replace the Mafia boss & another just like him will take his place.

    1. ANON 12:54 - My my - what a negative attitude. No - it won't put a stop to the opportunity for graft BUT it will surely make it MORE difficult for anyone contemplating that action to think twice because he/she won't be in the position long enough to make it worth a charge of treason, imprisonment or execution. Right now all in CON-gress have super glue on their AHOs, and they have enough bribes paying them off to make it worthwhile for them to take the 'risk.' Plus, so far they have NOT had to pay the price for their treason but, hopefully, now that is changing. So - yes - I DO 'think' replacing politicians on a term limit basis with highly monitored ballot voting WILL assist in making a positive change in the 'government'. My concern is WHEN will the Republic be implemented and a public announcement period begin informing the American people that they are no longer being held hostage to a criminal cabal mafia corporation posing as our 'government'? And that would include the United Nations which is NOT FOR THE PEOPLE but is working with the satanic cabal Archons/reptilians to destroy the people and the planet.

    2. MY REPLY to your criticism : "The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it." - George Bernard Shaw

      My Dad was at Pearl Harbor & my Mom was Rosy the Riveter - they raised me to be a realist, not a starry eyed dreamer. Raising 8 children makes any other approach a sure failure. Until a TRUE Republic replaces the prostitution ring known as Washington DC, voting is an exercise in futility. The only REALISTIC prescription for our PRESENT system is lengthy prison terms. The Mafia boss knows what he is doing is illegal. Can he be expected to reform himself & to preside/participate in his own undoing ? You can't reform criminal behavior by using a corrupted voting system to replace them with other criminals-in-training. You could not convince me that most of those who run for these offices are unaware of the corruption. The question to be asked is are they attracted to the job to "fix it" or to join the party ?

  2. Congress freshmen face two dangers in DC, the DC swamp and then there is the DC well.

    One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway;
    it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.

    He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly..

    Then, to everyone’s amazement he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well.
    He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.

    As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!

    MORAL : Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

    I guess it's easier to be saved from a well than from a swamp. Congressional term limits won't work. Just make DC off-limits. It's too life-risking.

    Term limits, how about instant removal if they are members of NAMBLA? That would take care most of them.
