Term Limits

I will be a citizen legislator, coming from the private sector and offering to serve for a limited number of years.

I do not believe it is healthy for our government to have legislators stay in Washington for decades. Consequently, I will fight for a constitutional amendment that limits House members to six terms, and Senators to two terms.

Congressional Pensions

I pledge that I will not take a Congressional Pension.

Members of Congress receive a defined benefit pension plan after serving just five years. I do not think Members should have a benefit that the private sector does not. Private companies have moved away from these defined benefit plans to defined contribution plan, such as 401ks. I will propose legislation to abolish the Congressional defined benefit pension plan and replace it with a 401k style plan.
