I propose that the states take action to remedy the dysfunction in Congress. Congressional term limits would reduce the bickering by bringing in new members who have not experienced years of animosity toward other members and are not professional politicians. Under the Constitution, if two-thirds of the state legislatures call a constitutional convention they can propose an amendment to the Constitution. I propose that congressional term limits be set the same as the presidency — a two-term limit. Three-fourths of the states would be needed to ratify the amendment; given the current situation, this may be achievable.
