“Professional politicians like to talk about the value of experience in government. Nuts! The only experience you gain in politics is how to be political.” - Ronald Reagan
82% of Americans favor term limits — as does President Trump. Term limits will remove career politicians who rig the system to keep themselves in office instead of getting things done for us voters.
In 1995, we were very close to achieving term limits for congress, thanks to the Republican congress that swept into the majority after America embraced the Contract with America. The Republican congress did their part, they brought the Citizens Legislature Act to a vote, and our party voted 189 to 40 in favor.
The Democrats killed the bill by voting against it, 163 - 38.
(By the way, Wyoming’s congressman Craig Thomas voted for the amendment).
The problem was not the amendment, the problem was the timing — it was voted on a year and a half before the next election. This time, we Republicans need to bring the same bill to a vote October of 2020, right before the next elections, where we the voters have the most power!
We voters will make clear to our elected officials that if they do not vote for term limits, we will vote them out of office a few weeks later (and we can bet that behind every incumbent that refuses to vote for term limits, there will be a challenger promising to uphold the voter’s will).
Done this way, it will pass.
I look forward to working with Senator Enzi and Rep. Liz Cheney to bring this important Constitutional amendment before Congress. The Equality State will not only have led the way for women to vote, but it will be Wyoming that led to the enactment of the greatest government reform in our lifetime.
Elect me to the U.S. Senate, and we will finish the job that the Republican Party began in 1995!
