Limit the Terms in Office for Congress and the Senate

Petition published by Kristin on Dec 17, 2012
27 Signatures 
Target: The President of the United States

Petition Background (Preamble):

Currently, congresspeople can be re-elected an unlimited number of times. This produces a large incentive for congresspeople to continually raise funds for their future re-election campaigns, which are VERY expense (in 2010, John McCain spent over $20-million dollars on his election campaign for the Senate).

As a result, many of our congresspeople do favors for special-interest groups in return for contributions to their re-election funds. This results in congresspeople representing special interest groups instead of their own constituents.

Petition:

We, the undersigned people of America, call on Congress and the President of the United States to pass a bill for there to be a limit of two terms for a person voted in to fill a position in Congress including Senators.
