A Republican senator on Tuesday introduced a Constitutional amendment that would mandate term limits for all federal lawmakers.
Sen. Jim DeMint's (R-S.C.) amendment would limit House members to three terms and senators to two terms. Every lawmaker then could serve no longer than six years in Congress.
Um, Jordan, I hate to break this to you, but two six year Senate terms amounts to twelve years, not six. The text of the amendment also has no restriction on Representatives going on to the Senate after finishing their three terms in the House, meaning lawmakers could serve up to eighteen years in congress.
Today hasn't been a good day for the three Rs in journalism.
