Chapter 1: Congress to consider term limits amendment to U.S. Constitution
Congressman Matt Salmon is in his fourth term, but that hasn’t stopped him from proposing a Constitutional amendment to impose term limits on members of Congress to just two. This follows Senator David Vitter’s similar proposal in January to the Senate. A recent Gallup poll puts favorability for Congressional term limits at 75 percent but a Constitutional Amendment requires more than a popular position even if Congress were to approve it. We talk to Phil Blumel, President of U.S. Term Limits.
Chapter 2: Public defenders seeing furloughs under sequestration
This year marks 50 since the Supreme Court gave the guarantee of legal defense regardless of one’s ability to pay for one in the decision Gideon v. Wainwright. Many more cases have been decided since then that have impacted the definition of that right, but simple economics has impacted it more than any legal precedent. In many public defenders’ offices, heavy case loads and a lack of resources mean, in practical terms, an erosion of that right. Now news that public defenders are no exception to furloughs due to sequestration cuts threatens to exacerbate the problem. We talk to Jonathan Rapping, law professor at Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School and a career public defender who founded Gideon’s Promise.

Millionaires buys midterm elections. Term limits brings the buying of elections to a screetching halt for politicians and CEOs. Millionaires do one thing. Millionaires watch their money and watch for ways to grow their money. Millionaires are being elected to watch tax payers dollars. Millionaires look for oppportunity to gain tax payers dollars. Millionaires invest in getting elected so they can grow their money. Not yours. It has nothing to do with you. Term limits will end this. Oversight ends this. Accountability ends this.

Elected officials get paid for no bid contracts. They pay back the special voters in their districts for their votes with special projects of want, while other districts go lacking of basic needs
Term limits will encourage elected officials to work, and when the work is completed they'll be rewarded until term limits sends them back home to live under the laws they have passed. If their work is not completed successfully, again they should be rewarded by firing them before term limits send them home.
