Meanwhile the left is trying to consolidate power to their east and west coast sanctuary cities by ending the electoral college.

I am 100% behind it and no one needs to spend a career in politics

How DARE you say that!  It’s MUCH better than working for a living.  And the retirement after just a handful of years is so much more than a military vet who serves 20 years, spends years away from his/her family, and risks getting shot by many enemies.  It is actually sickening what Congress has voted their status in life up to.

 

 

Quote

The median net worth for a member of Congress surpassed $1 million in 2013, where it remained through 2018. This compares to the average American household median net worth of less than $60,000. As reported by the Center for Responsive Politics, "it would take the combined wealth of more than 18 American households to equal the value of a single federal lawmaker's household." Entering 2016, approximately 8% of U.S. households could be classified as millionaires, compared to more than 50% of the members of Congress.

 

Congressional members are eligible for their own unique pension plans under the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS), though there are other retirement benefits available, ranging from Social Security and the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS). Currently, members of Congress are eligible for a pension dependent on the member's age at retirement, length of service, and salary. The pension value can be up to 80% of the member's final salary. In 2016, Congressional pay was $174,000 per year, which, at an 80% rate, equates to a lifelong pension benefit of $139,200. All benefits are taxpayer-funded.

Screw congress.  The opposite of progress.

If the Founding Fathers were alive, they'd be rolling in their graves.

I agree, this change along with the proposals from the House are just a lot of hot air.  None of them will go anywhere.  As to term limits, in reality we already have those every two and six years.  I know I oftentimes vote against the incumbent regardless of party.
