I read this with great interest, thinking I was going to have something to say, and then the last paragraph pretty much summed up my thoughts.
Our congress as a whole is about the worst bunch of money spending do nothings ever assembled in one place. While the average person on the street says "Throw the bums out!", that same person also says "My congressman is OK, it's the ones from (fill in the blank here...) that need to be done away with."
So, the same ones keep coming back. I used to think term limits were not necessary, they are built in, we call them elections. But now, I'm not so sure. I do think the perks that make it so desirable to be elected might need to be looked at, and reported to the public. How many have been elected who went in with modest personal wealth and became millionaires?
It's a corrupt bunch, we are the only ones who can fix that.
