This is just another reason why the corrupt establishment pukes on both sides of the aisle are afraid of the TRUMP MOVEMENT.

Representative's terms were originally limited to two years since that was about the maximum amount of time a farmer, merchant or craftsmen could be away from his vocation. It was never intend to be a vocation.
And if Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are the best we have nothing will ever fix our problems.
The fact that there is little support for term limits in Congress is irrelevant now that the Convention of States movement is underway. Congress is going to get term limits whether they want them or not. Same for the Supreme Court, too. Check it out, folks!
"The greatest gap in our social security structure in the lack of adequate provision for the Nations's health...I have often and strongly urged that this condition demands a national health program. The heart of the program must be a natlonal system of payment for medical care based on well-tried insurance principles...Our ultimate aim must be a comprehensive insurance system to protect all our people equally against insecurity and ill health."
State of the Union address in 1948 h. truman
Expand access to affordable health care to families regardless of immigration status. Hillary will expand access to affordable health care to families regardless of immigration status by allowing families to buy health insurance on the health exchanges regardless of their immigration status.
Trump: ‘I am going to take care of everybody’ Trump: There’s many different ways, by the way. Everybody’s got to be covered. This is an un-Republican thing for me to say because a lot of times they say, “No, no, the lower 25 percent that can’t afford private. But–”
Pelley: Universal health care.
Trump: I am going to take care of everybody. I don’t care if it costs me votes or not. Everybody’s going to be taken care of much better than they’re taken care of now.
Trump: —the government’s gonna pay for it...
While I disagree with Trump on other issues, this is one issue on which we would agree. I believe term limits for congress would be a good thing.
“If I am elected president, I will push for a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress,”
Hey, I'm all in for that, but the yuge hole in his plan is in order to get it through, he needs Congress to vote themselves out of office. I find that highly unlikely.
Without a Convention of States, there will be NO changes to DC.
Arrogant CNN idiot Brooke Baldwin trips over her own tongue trying to make fun of Donald Trump by claiming that “we already have term limits in Congress."
And they wonder why Trump supporters keep saying “CNN SUX.”
Speaking off "draining":
"A Clinton campaign “Forward Together” bus has been caught dumping foul-smelling human waste into the street and down a storm drain in Lawrenceville, Georgia, according to several reports.
“Police say when they arrived on the scene, toilet paper was scattered everywhere and there was a foul smell,” reported Atlanta’s WGCL-TV 46."
This is a great issue !!
And before the trolls say congress wont approve it, you do not need congress.
Read the constitution !
2/3 s of the states can put it forward to be ratified by 3/4 s of the state legislatures.
Thats 35 + 1
You dont need one blue state including mine. But Oregon has approved this and would approve it.
Trump needs to pound the drum on this one along with a balanced budget amendment.
Beck has taken from the Play Book of GW Bush, “We must abandon the election system to save the election system”. He has been on a quest to destroy Trump and out of his other side of mouth says he doesn’t support Hillary? Not one third party candidate lives up to his values and principles and yet he says he doesn’t support Hillary? His whole election coverage is a perpetual circle that ends up destroying Trump and yet he says he doesn’t support Hillary? After the election he is sure that he can go back to story telling and love rallies to regain his influence. I have my doubts.
The only way that will happen is with a convention of states. Not to be confused with a constitutional convention.

Term limits could be worse because then they would only vote to ensure a nice 7 figure income after their term ends. Maybe keeping these losers out of society and in Congress is the right thing to do.
How about another way.......don't vote for the same people all the time.
I agree, but worry the lobbyists will take over the power structure.
I agree fully with term limits. But once again, after recent comments and vitriol towards Republicans that disagree with him and his apparent preference for Democrats. The timing and his previous comments make me wonder if this is a sincere reason for his support of term limits, or just a way to get rid of those he dislikes because of their lack of support. Maybe he can get some of those other R's in there from the Reform party.
If he said he supported Article 5 Convention of the States and would like to see this passed as an amendment. That from Trump would be far more palatable and would show his understanding and willingness to utilize the ConstitutionI to fix our problems. It would be be far better/easier than relying on the entrenched politicians that would not cooperate with a him and a law that could be changed by politicians once he leaves office.
Trump would be impressive if he used the language of Supporting Article 5 Convention of the States as a way to "Making America Great Again".
