ABSTRACT
The article argues that Republicans would be foolish to withdraw their support for term limits after they gained control of the U.S. Congress in 1995. There are many Republicans that won who support the proposed congressional term limits. Apparently not all of them really believe that career politicians should be replaced with citizen legislators. Some Republicans have resorted to counterfeit term limits: six terms in the House. The important reason for them to get on the right side of this issue is that term limits are a fait accompli.
