Posey wants congressional term limits



Posey Florida Congressman Bill Posey, R-Rockledge, is co-sponsoring a bill that would limit senators and representatives to 12 years (2 terms and 6 terms respectively). “It’s probably the only way we can begin the process of reconnecting Congress with the American people – something too many people in Washington seem to have forgotten,” Posey said in a statement.

Currently there is no restriction and that's not probably not going to change. Sorry, Mr. Posey. But he can always follow his own restriction. (He will, a spokesman said.)

Sidebar: Posey has a good sense of humor. During the delegation meeting yesterday, Gov. Charlie Crist asked the former state senator about his tie. "Are you a gator?" Crist asked. No, Posey replied, "But Colbert said said I look like one."
