Term Limits for Congress
Term Limits for Congress is Doctor Lutin’s signature policy measure and it will, over time, lead to several important benefits for the country. It will require an amendment to the US Constitution to get this done and it will not be easy to obtain the votes of 2/3 of the members of the House of Representatives and 2/3 of the Senate. On the other hand, the benefit would be immense. We would no longer have Congressional leaders who serve indefinite terms, so we would have new blood brought into Congressional Leadership positions on an intermittent basis.
We would also have a guaranteed number of seats that would turn over at the end of each term of office, giving the holders of these seats license to speak and vote the truth in an uninhibited fashion. This would tend to reduce the posturing and unreasonableness that we see at present, leading to gridlock and dead-end debates. This, alone, is worth a Constitutional Convention if Congress will not pass it, in my opinion.
