Term limits would mean that elected officials would have to think about returning to the private sector, and would try to steer huge contracts to their future employers.....
Makin' shit up againSeveral GOP States passed term limits, Robert Byrd, D WVA sued and had them overturned.
Yeah, they do it now, you want all of them to do it?Do you honestly believe they aren't doing that now ?? How many leave congress and turn right around, go to work for some lobbying firm and are right back in the halls of congress chatting up their old pals and former colleagues ?
One of the ideas floated along with term limits was a provision that no former member of congress could register as a lobbyist or go to work for any company that did business with the federal government for five years. I thought it was brilliant.Yeah, they do it now, you want all of them to do it?
There are term limits, they are called elections.

The topic is H.R. 1 and WHY the GOP rejects it.
