BOB CUMMINGS, West Richland
We in the United States like to hold ourselves up as the model for the democratic process of government, and then one year out of four, we turn that government into a circus because it is election year.
We as a nation cannot afford to compound our normal government inefficiency by continuing to take every fourth year off. Term limits would help improve on this sorry record.
One term of six years for president and maybe two terms for the House and Senate. And while we are at it, our elected federal officials should be weaned out of the federal pension system and made to rely solely on Social Security and Medicare. Maybe then they would be more inclined to come up with some workable solutions to the issues facing these programs My name is Bob Cummings and I approve this message.
