I feel compelled to offer a word about term limits and the notion that we ought to restrict the length of time people can serve in Congress.
I’ll provide a name that suggests that we already have term limits: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
The 28-year-old New York City community activist knocked off a 10-term Democratic incumbent, Joe Crowley, in Tuesday’s primary election. Crowley was thought to be on the fast track to serious congressional leadership and power.
He is now on a faster track toward private life. Why? He wasn’t doing the job to his constituents’ satisfaction. So they acted. With their votes. Crowley is a goner.
Term limits? We’ve already got ’em, man!
