I know that there are those who feel we need experienced congressmen and women; that the longer they are in office the more they know how to operate.
My thought is, I wish that we had less operators who are scamming the system than neophytes who have not had the time to become jaded.
Two examples; Mitch McConnell has been in office for almost 29 years and his agenda is to strengthen the Republican party, the country be damned. Paul Ryan has been a Representative for 20 years and thank god he’s retiring. But what is said about McConnell promoting the party over country goes for him as well.
I would suggest that term limits of 3 terms for a Representative and 2 for a Senator would be sufficient. If they haven’t helped the U.S. by then, they aren’t going to, and if they have, then let them work with new blood to show them how to further the government and help the citizens of the U.S.
One more example; Chuck Grassley who has been a Senator for almost 38 years and did his best – and succeeded in pushing through Kavanaugh’s nomination for the Supreme Court.
