    Democrats will never go along with this. They would not be able to fund all the entitlement programs.

    H.J.RES.16 is a proposal to limit terms in office. House members to 4 year terms and both houses 2 consecutive terms.

    Neither party will cut the funds that pay their salery.

    That would be like you telling your boss that he can keep his money. :flower:
