For the first time since he was elected, President Trump has broached the subject of term limits for Congress. The President is limited to two terms maximum, while Congress has no limits. The subject came up as he was meeting with a bipartisan group of junior Congressmen. You can be sure that the incumbents that are career politicians will not be supporting such a move. There is just too much power and fortune to be had on Capital Hill for them to allow that. That is also why many people see that only a convention of States will ever be able to take this power away from them. Don’t buy into the argument that elections controls term limits. They have written election rules that always favors the incumbent. That is why an incumbent should never get you vote after a few terms.
