Better than Gridlock

in Fiscal Policy

In the past few days there have been a number of upsets in which incumbents were unseated in various primaries around the country.

Arlen Specter lost his bid for the Democratic nomination for a Senate seat in Pennsylvania.  He had been a five term Senator.  In the Kentucky Republican primary, Rand Paul defeated Secretary of State Trey Grayson. 

The upshot of these and other elections is that voters are saying they want to replace the current crowd in Washington.  I have advocated over the past two years that we should impose term limits for all Congressmen/women, and Senators.  Politicians should have “real jobs” that they put on hold to serve their country, then return to their chosen professions.

If it was good enough for George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, it’s good enough for me.
