I can't disagree, YWC. BUT, instead of blanket term limits, which are too easy for politicians to overturn, lets get rid of the grossly negligent incentives we have for crooks to run for election. How limiting would it be if all three branches and their employees were put on a benefit plan that was equal to what the average American has. And it gets adjusted every year. How about, when millions of americans lost their retirement funds, federal employees and elected officials lose some too.
It might give them a reason to push for a better economy if a bad one actually hurt them as much as it hurts the taxpayer...!
