S.J.Res.21 - Term Limits for Congress

S.J.Res.21 - A joint resolution proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States relative to limiting the number of terms that a Member of Congress may serve to 3 in the House of Representatives and 2 in the Senate. Senator Jim DeMint R-SC

Comment: I oppose this resolution because it limits the right of the citizen to vote for the candidate of their choosing. A term limit is a measure for lazy voters. Term limits will not fix the problems in Congress, only good citizens and restoration of the states place in the federal government.

It will also do nothing to solve corruption. Instead of contributing to a politician's campaign, special interests will just grant more favors to the politician's friends and relatives. Corruption is a real problem, but it can best be solved by limiting the politicians' power over our lives. Giving them less power will give special interests less incentive to corrupt them.

I'm in favor of two terms; the first in senate and the second in jail.
