I am sorry at the Old mans passing, but why do we allow people to remain in the senate until they die.
We should have a mandatory retirement for all politicians.
Sorry. This thread was meant to honor his American Heroism (highest order). Not his “Senate job till death.”
Term limits should be worth experimenting with it. If it didn't prove out we could just back to the “die in office” limit.
We have a legislative format in Texas where the Legislature is only in-session part time. Nationally, this could cut way back on the never ending waterfall of new laws that don't really do much that is new or needed.
