Terry J. Kryshak: Time for national term limits

Terry J. Kryshak

It is time for term limits on a national level. The latest debacle on raising the debt ceiling is an excellent example of why we need to get term limits for Congress and the Senate. All the political maneuvering does nothing to help our country, the only benefactor is the congressman/woman and or senator as they can use this maneuvering in their political campaigns. If we had term limits, at least we would have a chance that maybe, some of them would do what is in the best interest of the country versus doing what is in the best interest of their re-election. 

Ironically, it is only the president that has term limits; to me there is something wrong with this picture. But the chance of getting term limits is also slim to none since these same politicians would be the ones that would have to agree to change the system and what chance do we actually have of this happening.
