Term limits are the answer

January 23, 2012

Once again, the Sun is advocating public financing of Maryland political campaigns. ("Limited thinking," Jan. 18). Forget it! The taxpayer is not going to vote an increase in the already excessive amount of money taken from his hard earned paycheck to finance redundant TV ads for a government that is dysfunctional.

The same editorial is against term limits for Baltimore County Council members because elected officials "will be less experienced." What are they experienced at — corruption and rubber-stamping anything Governor Tax wants? If politicians are not experienced within a 12-year term limit they will never get it. Term limits would help shift our politicians' top priority away from reelection.
