A term limit is a law that limits the amount of time a political representative may hold an elected office. In the U.S. the office of the President is restricted to two four year terms. There are currently no term limits for Congressional terms but various states and cities have enacted term limits for their elected officials at the local level.
That's a double edged sword, if you make the term too short they'll have to be even more corrupt to scam what ever they can from American tax payers. If you leave them in too long they can take their time screwing everyone. I just think they should be bi-annually audited by independent parties and the auditing company has to change each time. If the books and emails are missing or out of order the Congress member will have to pay for the extra time it takes to find those items. If too much is missing they would have to step down and be held under house arrest until the matter is resolved.
No, but there should be an maximum age.
Congress was initially created as an unpaid, voluntary service to our country. 15 year term limits, decreased salary, and use of the same public healthcare of our citizens- which all end upon the end of their term. No salary and Healthcare for life.
Yes, we should add term limits, but unlike presidential terms, the members of congress can serve two presidential terms continuously(does not have to be the same president) then will have to skip atleast one term before sunning for a seat again.
