This couldn't be enacted fast enough as far as I'm concerned!
Term Limits: 2x terms US Senate; 6x terms US House. Doubtful Congress will do this on its own. It takes 2/3 of the States to convene a Constitutional convention and 3/4 of the States to ratify an amendment the Constitution. Let's get it done!!
Legislators who impede government by IDEOLOGIES rather than compromise need to leave office immediately without pay. NO LOBBYISTS OR SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS, FREEBIES, OR FUNDS allowed. Government by the people, not the special groups!
our congressional representatives should be enrolled in Social security - its for all Americans.
All public officials taking the oath of office, swear to uphold the constitution. Ignoring, re-interpreting, or violating that constitutional oath in any way, is grounds for immediate removal from office. No vote, no trial, no impeachment, immediate removal, and disqualification from any future public office. Any benefit, or entitlement, accrued from that office, (protection, retirement, health, office, staff, travel, speakers fees, books, campaign funds & donations, and any other gratuity derived from that public service) shall be forfeit.

This bill will help cut the US Deficit into 1/3 in three years.
To all Congressmen and Women. You are not Americas's Royal Family - Stop acting as if you are! Stop treating us as subjects. If you pass a law you and your family must also live with the consequences of the that law. Do your 4 years and return home and work under the rules and regulations you've imposed upon us. Congress is not a career. We elected you and we can fire you.
This is long overdue. Corruption is terrible in Congress.
Congress members and their staff shall not receive pay if the annual budget is not signed into law.
Term Limits should be added to this.
What has been allowed to happen here is a disgrace and embarrassment to our country.
Do the right thing Congress.
If a law applies to me, it should apply to Congress. Equality for ALL - Serving in Congress is a PRIVELEGE, not a career path.
The free ride is over.time for common sense....
Something has to change, time to put the monster that has been created on a leash!
It is about time we all did this!!!
I support this 100% and want to see it enacted immediately.
Justice for All.
Justice for All.
Term limits for the political class are essential
This sounds eminently fair and right to me!
Be FAIR! We are not their slaves!
This is pathetic!!!!
please get this passed immediately
Tired of YOU using MY money to fill your pockets and those of your "Buddies".
I wish I could vote myself a pay raise.
"The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work" If the Founding Father could see their county now! :(
Time for a change.
