    IMHO if there were no lucrative retirement system for Congress, there would be very few if any trying to remain in Congress for many terms, thus fattening their retirement. This desire has resulted in too much "politicking" and not enough work solving (instead of creating) problems.

    That is part of the problem, but those in power - have power .

    Will you make term limits part of the campaign for 2010?

    We have term limits now. It's called the ballot box.

    Most of our representatives are professional people who could do much better in the private sector than they do in government.

    Not in Washington State. Patty Murray, for example.
