The importance of term limits for all of Congress was epitomized in the 2014 election cycle when Congress had an approval rating of 11% but a re-election rate of 96%.
Another example of why we need term limits was the 2008 election cycle when 55 members of Congress ran unopposed. In both cases millions of Americans had no real say in who represented them in Congress because of the power of incumbency.
According to recent Gallup polling, 75 percent of Americans back term limits for members of Congress. The issue is bipartisan, drawing support from 82 percent of Republicans, 65 percent of Democrats and 79 percent of Independents.
