I see where you are going with that MA, but to be honest, anything less would still allow those lifers (without a good record) to hang on in DC as
long as they have some deep pocket contributors who want to keep that person in DC doing their dirty work..
I may be just overly optimistic, but I think that there are plenty of upright solid citizens who wouldn't mind spending a short time of their life
representing the citizens' interests and not big money interests.
Keeping the terms relatively short, it will allow those bright lights to come forward on a revolving basis..
And if there is someone who has done a great job in the House and their term is up, they could move on up the ladder to the Senate if the voters of
their state so desire?
One thing is for sure, the first step towards being able to have the pleasure of debating this issue is clear..
Throw the Bums out!!!
