The voice of the public would be heard a lot louder and clearer if the people we voted in weren’t embedded in office. There are plenty of bright, capable minds with fresh new ideas out there that would be willing to accept a reasonable limit to the amount of time spent in office.

Term limits for all elected officials would be a step forward for all classes of voting taxpayers. Bipartisan legislation would become much more of a reality than the hopeless, dismal leadership we now have.
