Re: “Put a stop to all the madness” (letter, 12-28).

The letter writer sure nailed it. In addition to term limits I would suggest making it illegal for members of Congress to accept any kind of a gratuity from lobbyists. It’s a shame that most congresspeople go to D.C. for just wealth and power and their first concern is re-election.

  1. I would extend it to ALL elected or appointed officials, with some serious hard time in jails like the one in Phoenix, Arizona for anyone offer, accepting, or facilitating a bribe

  2. I second the motion proposed by xring!

    All those in favor signify by posting – AYE!

    All those opposed, never mind!
