Margaret G's Email to Representative John B. Larson

I gave you a grade of F.

You think you can hang a "Do no disturb for 4 years" sign on your door by amending the Constitution.

Congress is not a Squatter's Resort but too many scoundrels drop anchor and stay for life, renewing their parking permit every two years. You think you'd like to reduce the trouble and expense of being the representative closest to the people and their local issues, earning their votes every two years. 

Here's my solution - term limits.  You have run eight campaigns for sixteen years in congress. It is a rotating office, not a career. Many other civic minded adults deserve a chance to serve. Don't try to lock them out by amending the Constitution.
