Limit terms to no more than twelve years. America does not need a permanent political class. Congress should be made up of citizens who serve for a limited time and then return to their communities to live under the laws they have created. Nevada got this right. In Nevada politicians are limited to 12 years in any office. Enactment at the federal level requires a constitutional amendment. Limit service in Congress to 12 years (6 terms in the House; 2 terms in the Senate) Also, eliminate Federal pensions for elected and politically-appointed officials.
