About time. NO one should be allowed to serve in Congress past 80. These 'Congressmen-for-life' designations need to be revoked.

Either by the voters, or by term limits...

Not good enough if we have people serving in Congress into their '90s and/or through many, many terms over a period of decades.

If the rules of the House and Senate weren't so arcane, it wouldn't take people 2 or three House terms or an entire Senate term to figure them out before they could be effective legislators, either.

FWIW

Show us evidence that anyone running for the House, Senate, or White House won through the "rigging" of an election.
