Another Case for Term Limits?

leave a comment »

As testimony from individuals and organizations claiming to be harassed by the IRS during their application process for tax exempt status continues on Capital Hill continues Congressmen Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) made a statement that proves a person CAN be in Washington DC too long.  To the point where political loyalties acquired over time belie common sense and common justice.

Roll Tape

Representative McDermott’s partisan and accusatory remarks do little more than label him a hardcore political hack. One the citizens of Washington would do well to assess closely come time for his reelection.  Representative Paul Ryan then followed McDermott by figuratively stamping the words Political Hack on the forehead of the Congressman from Washington.

Shame on Jim McDermott (D).  Shame on the “Old Guard” mentality of incumbents of both parties.  I was once an opponent of term limits.  My opposition faded long ago due to examples just like this one…
