Sen. Bennett's law was passed as part of the Agricultural Appropriations bill in 2005

Is this what we elect people to govern and protect us are doing in our name?

The answer is yes!

The only way to correct this is term limits!

Our founding fathers did a marvelous job of authoring and designing our country. They overlook one major horror, the professional politician. Term limits will never happen because of who has to vote on them to put them into law.

The Congress has checkmated the American public.

I completely agree on the need for term limits. The XXII Amendment (putting term limits on the presidency) was ratified in 1951. Our historical experience told us clearly (after FDR was more dead than alive in his fourth term) that the people must be protected from excessive tenure in public office.
By the way, this should also apply to Supreme Court members. As Mark Levin has documented in his book, many of them have been on the bench while clearly senile, deranged, or in other ways physically or mentally totally incapacitated.
Most of us have to function and be accountable for such failings. What gives these very important figures immunity from accountability in a democratic Republic where all our lives and values are so directly affected?
