There should be an amendment to the Constitution. “Congress will pass no laws, rules or regulations that does not include them.”

I believe all incumbents, regardless of political party should be voted out of office. Any new president, congressman or senator could do no worse than those that are in office.

This video just goes to show our government is really run by grafters; whoever gets to his legislator
with the biggest wad gets his wish,– the taxpayer be damned!

SO IT IS

I DON’T SEE HOW THE TERM LIMITS CAN EVER BE CHANGED. IT WOULD TAKE AN “ACT OF CONGRESS” TO MAKE ANYTHING LIKE THAT HAPPEN. OUR MISS REPRESENTATIVES ARE WAY OUT OF TOUCH AND WILL ONLY TO MAKE IT WORSE FOR THE POOR WORKING CLASS. MORE GOVERNMENT AND MORE HANDOUTS KEEP GETTING THEM VOTES.

Most people think the President and his administration has poorly planed Obama Care, just the opposite. I believe this
was all laid out to bring down the middle class which is the back bone of the United States. You can not have a prosperous middle class and control them. If Obama and his administration was really concerned about the well being
of the citizen of our nation the very first thing he would have done was do everything possible to get the economy moving
forward, that would have really helped the middle class. You will always have the very rich and the poor. What made this nation great is that we had a very prosperous middle class.
Obama and his administration – HOW SAD!!

I agree, we need to eliminate NSA, EPA, TSA, OSHA, Dept. of ED, and a host of others, also, we need to limit the number of employees at the IRS. These agency’s have grown out of control and out of reach of both houses of Congress. We also need to place a limit on the number of campaign trips and vacations the members of Congress and the Executive Branch are allowed to take in lieu of working at their jobs. I, for one, am damn tired of seeing my tax dollars squandered by the ELITE for their own consumption.
TERM LIMITS are the only way we will ever be able to control our form of government and this includes members of the Supreme Court. NOBODY should ever be appointed to a lifetime appointment. All members of Congress, the Supreme Court Justices and the Executive branch MUST follow the same Laws and Regulations as the lowest citizen and they should not be entitled to the retirement/pensions that they are currently receiving, that is just INSANE. They need to live like the people they represent, NOT like KINGS & QUEENS.
BAND ALL LOBBYIST and LOBBYING of Congress, that alone would save HUNDREDS of BILLIONS of dollars a year and eliminate our members of Congress from conflicts of interest.
Run the country like a business for a change, instead of the Elites own personal CASH COW.
Build a STRONG MILITARY and pay them well and support the Veterans with the BEST Medical care and pensions that can be afforded a Nation and arm that Military with the BEST ARMS and Technology money can buy, to keep this country FREE. You don’t promote people in the Military for Politically Correct reasons, Only for Leadership Abilities.

YOU NAILED IT, 100 % ABSOLUTLEY CORRECT! TERM LIMITS ARE THE ONLY THING THAT WILL EVER CHANGE OUR GOVERNMENT. THE PEOPLE NEED TO DEMAND A SPECIAL REFERENDUM VOTE ON TERM LIMITS FOR ALL OF CONGRESS, CAUSE LET’S FACE IT THEY WILL NEVER VOTE ON IT SINCE IT AFFECTS THEM. THE ONLY THING THEY KNOW HOW TO VOTE ON IS THEIR OWN PAY RAISES. UNBELIEVEABLE.!

Enact term limits, Take Social Security money out of the general fund and put it back where it belongs. Eliminate dependence on Middle East oil. Eliminate EPA.. Kill Obamacare NOW. Make Californians take a sanity test before voting. I am so tired of Pelosi and Feinstein. (Nevada too). Regain respect for our Constitution, and break Obama,s pen. Where has common sense gone? There is little truth in Washington. This government treats us like idiots, lies to us, has lost all respect, and has become a laughing stock. Their control of fraud is a joke. No one takes responsibility for any of their actions, and WE are not holding the accountable. Wake up America. It,s time for common sense to prevail.

Drop HSA and NSA then cut IRS by 3\4 because it should only monitor a fair Consumption Tax on everything except basic foods, clothing, and shelter. Cut House of Reps by 2\3 because we now have instant communication and could have even faster travel ( bullet trains that frees Air Travel to 300 miles or more). Cut Senators to 1 per State. Make every ELECTION (local, state @ federal) only 100 days from nomination to voting. Cut everything by 5% unless they keep a 5% surplus at the end of each year. If they overspend or have 0 at end of year, their Budget is cut by 10% for the next year. Any cost over-runs on a project or item are added to the next Bid Estimate, so they will likely lose the next Bid. Eliminate the Dept. of Ed. at the Fed. level — too political and too distant from the people and never envisioned in our Constitution .
