I will grant you 250k salaries for legislator if you agree they are only allowed to be civil servants at any level of the government for 8 years and then return to the private sector.

I'm fine too as long as somehow we can ban lobbyists.

fiscal conservative here totally against corporate money in politics. Citizens United would solve 90% of the lobby problem

“Fiscal conservative against corporate money in politics.”

True fiscal conservatives love Cit. United, you sir fall into the “reasonable human-being” conservative vertical.

While I truly dislike taxes and wasteful spending I can live with that label.

I support term limits as well.

Term limits sound so good, but in practice they've been quite bad. Missouri tried them and all they've done in let the bureaucrats and lobbyists run the show. If you're out in eight years you're already looking for your next job, so you'll cozy up to industry.

Why not?

What will be the benefit of that?


[deleted] t1_j63a7ay wrote

The elimination of entrenched, corrupt and bureaucratic career politicians who make self serving decisions while in office.

Why would politicians with shorter terms be less self serving? If anything, knowing they're going to go right back to their private sector company in a couple years give them even more motivation to represent that company's interests.
