Bucks County Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick is sponsors a bill to create term limits.
Fitzpatrick says, the mindset of serving as a Federal lawmaker needs to change.
“We need those people who are experts in their fields who are elected to bring their knowledge to the Congress and Senate and help the nation move forward and then go back home and live by the laws they helped pass. It also gives another group of young lawmakers to take part in the legislative process.”
Fitzpatrick, a recent guest on WNPV’s AM Edition says, when he worked the corruption unit with the FBI, he found that lawmakers who stay around for long periods in D.C. are more prone to taking bribes and engaging in other illegal activity.
