With all of these so called powerful people in politics doing bad things in or before their political careers. Maybe we as voters need to demand that they have term limits and it be put on the ballots for the citizens to decide, not let them decide, they will never limit their jobs. I mean really they seem to get so powerful and when something from their past comes up they say "Oh I am Sorry" and nothing happens to them. They should not be above the law. And the jobs they do were not suppose to be a lifetime job. This Franken crap is just the beginning.

I think it ought to be one six-year term for US senators and three two-year terms for US reprentatives. No one should be allowed to be a senator or representative long enough to draw a pension. If they want a pension, they should earn it in the private sector.

Yes term limits are needed bigly! McCain, McConnell, Schumer, Pelosi and many more need to be out. The parties won't work together to get anything done.
