Rep. O’Rourke, I respectfully have to disagree. In my view, it would lead to us having a novice legislature that, consequently, would make the executive more powerful, and I feel that the executive is already powerful enough.

I appreciate what the movement to impose term limits is trying to do: make a more responsive Congress, but I think the best way to do that is get rid of the corrupting factors that you also identified: money and gerrymandering.
