A career politician is a detriment to our system. Term limits would reduce the effect of lobbyist. We need to limit the terms to 12 years. We came up with 12 years because the senate term is 6 years. A senator should be able to work 2 terms. This gives the House of Representatives 6 - 2 year terms. As you are aware, the President is limited to 2 – 4 year terms.
