Republicans and Democrats: We’re all losing

Term limits should be enacted for members of congress

While the Republicans and Democrats argue, we’re all losing. Valuable services are being denied and now we’re facing default.

Government is too big. What is the alternative? We can’t completely close shop and start over. The answer is to fire the employees. If the people working for me fail to do what I ask of them, do I quit and let them continue? No, I look for new employees.

In this case, we need to get rid of every current person now sitting in Washington, D.C. Term limits must be enacted, or someday we’ll be right back here again.
