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.

There should be a term limit for all public offices. Many say that a term limit is our vote. While that may be true, what happens when the candidates are worthless and neither fulfills their duty or responsibility? When you have a career politician who has accomplished absolutely nothing in his or her time in their seat, what exactly is your vote doing? Nothing towards the betterment of our country, merely lining the pocket of the re-elected person for years on end.

Yes to term limits but long enough to be effective. Too little term limits hinders progress. Government works very slowly.

No but benefits should be lessened. Medical should be no better than that provided in medi-care and pensions should have caps and limited to one rather than for each office they have held.

@9HC8BWXIndependent from Missouri answered…3mos

Yes, I believe there should be terms that each individual can serve, but allow the seniors mentor to help with any issues and allow them to become better representatives.

Yes, once they have done their 8 years as president, vice president, senator, governor, etc they should NOT be allowed to run anymore.

@9H9R34FPeace and Freedom from Indiana answered…3mos

Yes, decrease their salary and benefits, outlaw all money and incentives in lobbying, make elections publicly (and transparantly) funded and implement a yearly public audit (with criminal charges applied proportionally for any criminal misconduct they reveal) help ensure accountability.

@pest3366Independentfrom Kentucky  answered…3mos

Yes, term limit to a set # after which a candidate must set out a # of elections and then may run again.

@9H7S6NYGreen from Georgia answered…3mos

No, but increase the seats that are up for re-election to one-half instead of one-third

@9H52CJ4Republican from Ohio answered…3mos

Yes, reduce salary and remove retirement benefits altogether. Public office should not receive publicly funded retirement programs.

@9H4BSR7Green from Florida answered…3mos

Yes, but more than two (as there surely is experience gained in serving many years) and possibly expand the terms so there isn’t a constant election cycle

@9H3Y7X5Libertarian from Tennessee answered…3mos

I'm not opposed to term limits, but that won't solve any corruption problems. If it would, the President would never be corrupt.

@9GXCB7YConstitution from Kansas answered…3mos

Congress should be abolished and the power of it passed to the president.

@NanbanJimRepublican from New Mexico answered…3mos

@frisbyce21Veteran from Virginia answered…3mos

I don't think that politicians should hold an elected office for life or if they are corrupt, but I think that people should be able to reelect them if they want.

@9FMKQHDGreen from Texas answered…3mos

No, but we should overhaul campaign finance laws and limit corporate influence on elections.

@9FLPCKBSocialist from Louisiana answered…3mos

@9FL8F3NWomen’s Equality from Florida answered…3mos
