There are some entities where nobody would bat an eye if you made a career out of it and stayed working there until you were too old to work.
My dad spent twenty three years in the Air Force and only got out when he felt like he couldn’t physically do the job anymore.
There are countless people in countless professions that have made careers out of jobs related to their skill.
Let’s face it, being a politician isn’t exactly a skill. You’re being sent there to give your opinion and vote. Any jackass can do that. That being said there are some people that find out they are really good at it and stay for fifty years in some cases.
Which if someone stays in office for as long as some politicians do they cannot exactly be good representatives anymore because all they are doing is trying to hold onto their job rather than serve the people.

On Thursday, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Representative Francis Rooney (R-FL) introduced a joint resolution to amend the Constitution of the United States. The proposed amendment would place term limits on elected officials in the Senate and House.
The text of S.J.Res.1 reads:
SECTION 1. No person who has served three terms as a Representative shall be eligible for election to the House of Representatives. For purposes of this section, the election of a person to fill a vacancy in the House of Representatives shall be included as one term in determining the number of terms that such person has served as a Representative if the person fills the vacancy for more than one year.
SECTION 2. No person who has served two terms as a Senator shall be eligible for election or appointment to the Senate. For purposes of this section, the election or appointment of a person to fill a vacancy in the Senate shall be included as one term in determining the number of terms that such person has served as a Senator if the person fills the vacancy for more than three years.
SECTION 3. No term beginning before the date of the ratification of this article shall be taken into account in determining eligibility for election or appointment under this article.
The bill, which is co-sponsored by Senators Mike Lee (R-UT) and Marco Rubio (R-FL), was introduced and “read twice and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary,” according to the official website for the United States Congress.
