Recommended Posts

LMAO!! I don't think he has talked to Congress, but it sounds like a Gottcha to me!!! LMAO!! Bad thing with term limits, you limit the brightest minds, less people will spend the $$ to get elected and get out, you will be funding more early retirements for taxpayers, and preventing the poor fool from making a living fr five years. LMAO! Congress will never go for this.

 

Trump proposes term limits for Congress

Donald Trump on Tuesday called for term limits in Congress as part of his new ethics reform proposal.

"If I’m elected president I will push for a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress,” Trump said at a rally in Colorado Springs, Colo. "Decades of failure in Washington and decades of special-interest dealing must and will come to an end.”

"Not only will it end our government corruption, but we will end the economic stagnation that we’re in right now — no growth," Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, added of the proposal.

Trump released a five-point ethics plan Monday night in an effort to "drain the swamp" in Washington.

He also wants Congress to pass a law preventing all administration officials, lawmakers and congressional aides from lobbying the government for five years after leaving public service.

His plan additionally includes a call for Congress to pass legislation banning registered foreign agents from raising money in U.S. elections.

Trump promised as part of the plan to close loopholes that allow former government officials to call "themselves consultants and advisers when we all know they are lobbyists."
