Patrick Robeck started this petition to U.S. House of Representatives and

No one thing will return the balance of power to the people. We need a multi-faceted approach. There are many things that have made royalty of our Senators, House of Representatives, and the Executive branches. I believe the ideas I have listed below can be a start in the right direction. 

  • Our elected officials spend too much time trying to get reelected. They become too entrenched in protecting their positions in committees and party politics. I propose the following term limits to help curb this. 
    1. The President is elected to one term of six years. They may run again, but not for consecutive terms and may only sit for a total of two terms. 
    2. The Senate is elected for a single six year term. They may run again, but not for consecutive terms and may only sit for a total of two terms. Their elections will remain staggered at two year intervals with a third up for reelection. 
    3. The House of Representative is elected for a single three year term. They may run again after one year out of office and may only sit for a total of 3 terms.. Their elections will be staggered by one year.
  • Benefits for elected officials including medical and retirement are matched to regular Federal Government employee benefits.
