Blum to co-chair new Congressional Term Limits Caucus

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) -

Republican Congressman Rod Blum joined Democratic Congressman Beto O'Rourke of Texas to form and co-chair the bipartisan Congressional Term Limits Caucus.

The goal of the new bi-partisan membership organization is to build momentum toward legislation that would enact term limits for members of Congress.

“As someone coming to Congress from the private sector, I believe Washington suffers from a lack of fresh, innovative ideas and the courage to implement them,” Blum said in a written statement. “The root of this problem is that politicians are incentivized by the system to care more about retaining their position than doing what is best for the country. Our founding fathers never intended for public service to be a career, rather, serving in Congress was designed to be a temporary sacrifice made for the public good. As Co-Chair of the Congressional Term Limits Caucus, I'm looking forward to working with my fellow Co-Chair Representative O'Rourke to build momentum for this common sense bipartisan reform.”
