In 1951 Congress limited the number of terms a President may serve but did not limit the number of terms a member of Congress may serve. It made it possible for them to have lifetime careers by the despicable practice of adding Riders to bills of legislation in which were added pork barrel projects that were unnecessary and a waste of taxpayers money amounting to billions of dollars. This ingratiated themselves with constituents back home assuring them of lifetime careers. The reprehensible aspect of this is that term limits can only be made by Congress. It is like Congress saying to its members, " Stop the gravy train and everybody get off."
I have some ideas on how this can be changed. In coming posts I will share those with you. In the meantime, what do you think?
