Congressman, about those term limits

Updated 7/30/2012 1:21 PM

An open letter to Congressman Peter Roskam:

Several weeks ago I sent a letter to you requesting that you inform us of your position on term limitations for members of Congress and why Congress should be exempt from the same strictures placed on the presidency.

Thus far, I have had no response. This is an election year and many of your fellow congressmen and constituents would like to know your position on this vital issue.

Many of us have supported you in the past and would like to do so again. But we have difficulty understanding your reluctance to respond to our inquiry. Please don't tell me that elections are the same thing as term limits. They simply are not. Ninety percent of incumbents are re-elected due to public apathy and infusion of money.

Please give me your promise and willingness to support Congressional term limits.
