As someone who lives in a state where term limits were enacted for our legislature 10 years ago, its been a complete and total failure. Things went from bad, to much much worse.Originally posted by: GTaudiophile

Its like when the decide to vote them selves a raise.
Do you really expect them not to?
And in addition, I hope Congress eventually self-imposes...
1) Term limits (two).
2) No salary (only get reimbursed for food, rent in DC area, and travel expenses to home state/district. Job should be voluntary for the good of their constituents.)
3) Refuse all additional benefits, including health care...such that they would be forced to experience what everyone else does instead of their perfect health care.
4) Be required to file their own taxes every year on their own without additional help, aside from a calculator and maybe TurboTax software. No accountants!
