Should There Be Term Limits for Members of Congress?

Salmon, who was a lobbyist between his stints in Congress, says in a press release that he's "always believed that universal term limits will help make members of Congress more accountable to their constituents, not the special interests that often keep them in office."

Salmon's bill, which would require a constitutional amendment, would call for a maximum of two full terms for Senators, and three full terms for Representatives.

Do you think that's a good idea?
