Jim Bender on Government Reform

 


We don't need more career politicians; impose term limits

Too many people running for office are either career politicians, or people who want to be career politicians. We need someone who is focused on cleaning up government, ending corruption, and stopping wasteful spending. We don't need more career politicians.

We need public servants who respect the special trust which we place in them. [I want] to expand the 22nd amendment to include strict Congressional term limits.
