Nicole Leone started this petition to The American People and

Over the course of the pandemic, it has become increasingly clear that the members of U.S. Senate and House of Representatives are completely out of touch with the needs of the American people.  They are deeply influenced by those who pad their pockets, rather than by the voice of the Americans they claim to serve.  In this petition, we propose term limits, set at two terms, for both members of the House and Senate.  Lifetime salaries will be removed, as will lifetime health benefits.  In order to keep the members of Congress motivated to create and maintain adequate  public programs, upon retirement members of Congress will also utilize those services-such as Medicare- or pay out of pocket for other services just as the American people do.  Our goal is to motivate those in public office to stay focused on, and connected to those they serve.  No longer is a job in Congress a get rich quick scheme.  It’s time they focus on the American people, or get out.
