Lawmakers are out of control.Or maybe we should call them law addicts. They can't even put a bill together without trying to swindle taxpayers for some cash for their interest. That is totally pathetic. America should call for all of Congress to resign and start fresh with lawmakers that have nothing to gain and limit them all to 2 terms with no retirement package benfits period.....

We have term limits for most elected officials, including the President of the U.S. We should have term limits for those in Congress. Having
term limits would prevent the continuing dilemma of having people like Strom Thurmond, Byrd, Kennedy, and a few others linger in Congress, long, long after their prime years. We need sharp
minds in Congress. Feeble minds belong in senior centers, not in Congress.
