End the end­less elec­tion cy­cle

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - Opinions -

One rea­son very lit­tle seems to get done in the way of leg­is­la­tion in Amer­ica is be­cause most ju­nior politi­cians are con­tin­u­ally in “re­elec­tion mode.”

I’m re­fer­ring to our rep­re­sen­ta­tives in the lower house of Congress. They are up for elec­tion ev­ery two years and only seem to get mean­ing­ful things done in year one, if then. The next year is spent look­ing for money to get re-elected.

I think it’s time to change that to a four-year term and to make that hap­pen in the mid­dle of the pres­i­den­tial elec­tion cy­cle. More time could be spent get­ting the busi­ness of Amer­ica in or­der and less time look­ing to get re-elected.
