If it actually goes through Congress will work around it buy consistently grooming their own replacements.  In the process, creating an even bigger pool of lobbyists.

This. Short a constitutional convention, that makes term limits a amendment to the constitution.... it will never happen, if congress etc has any say in it.


However, it would be the best way to drain the swamp.

Ha! Ha! Ha! Do you really think that our elected overlords would willingly vote themselves off the gravy training and onto the unemployment lines.

What this system really needs is for 1/3 of legislators at any given time to have more to gain from the guy that gives them the next job than the people who gave them their current job.

Plus it would prevent any legislator from outlasting career staff or bureaucrats and allow the bureaucrats to continue the appropriate policies without Congressional interference.
