What's a little money? Blacks would still have to live in the "racist" USA. How about a one-way ticket to the country of choice in Africa?
Tom McClintock held the line on spending while serving as state Senator in CA. He'd be a fine candidate for the position, a Washington outsider.

"I have to march because my mother couldn't have an abortion." Big Brain Maxine Waters regretting that her mother couldn't get an abortion.
Twelve years of environmentalist indoctrination in public "schools" leads these children to the inescapable conclusion that humans are parasites, polluting the earth and using up its resources. It's a small wonder that there aren't more mass shootings by students. This is what "zero population growth" has given us.

Term Limits, Now More Than Ever

"The founding fathers set up the system to be populated with part time 'citizen legislators', not entrenched career politicians." And so pay them career salaries with benefits? "Congressional salaries should be high enough to attract the 'best & brightest..." We'd get a much better quality person if there were no pay at all. "Shorten the Senate terms to 4 years, ...lengthen House terms to the same..., two terms & out...This means that every 8 years, there will be a complete turnover in D.C., just as the founders envisioned it." ?????? I don't know how you figure there would be a complete turnover every 8 years with 1/3 of the senate up for election every 2 years. This is certainly not how the founders envisioned it. But feel free to read into the constitution whatever your emotions tell you.

Term limits only limit the powers of the citizens. In California, term limits has created another revolving door, where one termed out of the assembly goes to the senate or another branch. Much easier to limit pay to $60K/year with NO BENEFITS and watch them term themselves out. Imagine having to beg someone to run for office, instead of having to weed through them.
