Congress should be a branch of government that changes.
The life long politician is the issue in our government, having members in the Congress that have served for two decades promising they t fighting for you, meanwhile they live in Washington D.C. full time. The issues at home are having to be sent to them over email. Their connection to the people have been lost, and their connections are lobbyist in D.C. The senators come home every six years to fundraise and the representatives have to come back to fund raise due to their short two year term.
Here is a new law that I will purpose, a law that does not limit the citizens of the country, but ensures that representation is fair for all citizens.
A member of the House of Representatives shall serve no more than SIX TERMS, members of the House of Representatives serve a two year
term as they do now. The House is designed to be the people's voice in the government, to have the people watching and checking in on the
government. The every day man or woman representing the everyman back at home. The fact is that we have folks that have been in the
House for decades, with millions in their donors box keeping them in office for their donors.
Six terms would allow a representative 12 years to help and serve their people.
A member of the Senate shall serve no more than THREE TERMS, members of the Senate serve a six year term as they do now. The Senate is
the equal representation of each state to D.C. Each state having two people to represent the state. The Senate reigns more power directly to
the administration compared to the House. The Senate has a voice in the Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense, Supreme Court Judges,
and maintains a relationship with the Vice President, who presides over the Senate.
Three terms will allow a senator to serve for 18 years, that is long enough to serve the people of their state.
The job has a salary of $174,000.00. The job was originally designed to be a part time job and that is a high salary for a full time job, much less a part time job. In this bill that I would purpose in my first days representing you, I would also like to place a cap, at the on the salary for all congressional members for 10 years.
No one should become a millionaire from being a member of Congress.
