YES!! Our government is populated with professional politicians who are lawyers who couldn't make it in the real world. They have become pawns of special interest groups who ply them with expensive favors or under the table payments. Corporations, banks and the super rich dictate to the parties what legislation needs to be passed or tax breaks for them. Our founding fathers never conceived of the idea of professional politicians. Their work year is supposed to be 100 days, but they get greatly compensated even for campaigning or special "fact finding" junkets to popular vacation spots at taxpayer expense. Limit terms to no more than 12 years-period!
