Members of CONGRESS


Recommended Posts

I have enjoyed working here these past several years. You have paid me very well and given me benefits beyond belief. I have 3 to 4 months off per year, and a pension plan that will pay my salary till the day I die and then pay my estate one year's salary death bonus and then continue to pay my spouse my salary with increases until she or he dies along with a health plan that most people can only dream of having.
Despite this, I plan to take the next 12 to 18 months to find a new position. During this time I will show up for work when it is convenient for me. In addition, I fully expect to draw my full salary and all the other perks associated with my current job. Oh yes, if my search for this new job proves fruitless, I will be coming back with no loss in pay or status. Before you say anything, remember that you have no choice in this matter. I can, and I will do this.

How can term limits be implemented, how can lobbyists be limited, how can bureaucrats be limited?

One possibility would be to keep CongressCritters in their home states and districts for most of each year.

Changing back from popular election of Senators to state legislative appointments as written into the Constitution and amended out would help. Senators really don’t give a flip about their state and constituents except for the six months or so before their reelection voting period.

Term limits   WHY would "YOU" legislate yourself out of a job  NEVER HAPPEN

Strange things can happen. State legislatures were persuaded - somehow - to vote for the amendment which removed their power to select their state’s Senators. Have never understood that.
