Congress to consider term limits amendment to US Constitution

Congressman Matt Salmon is in his fourth term, but that hasn’t stopped him from proposing a Constitutional amendment to impose term limits on members of Congress to just two. This follows Sen. David Vitter’s similar proposal in January to the Senate.

A recent Gallup poll puts favorability for Congressional term limits at 75 percent but a Constitutional Amendment requires more than a popular position even if Congress were to approve it.

Host Carmen Russell-Sluchansky spoke with Phil Blumel, president of U.S. Term Limits, the nation’s largest term limits advocacy group, to discuss the story.
