Bernie Sanders Criticizes the Idea of Term Limits for Congress in Iowa Rally

In a recent campaign rally in Iowa, Bernie Sanders expressed his disapproval for the idea of term limits for members of Congress. After a member of the audience asked Sanders if he would sponsor a bill to set term limits on Congress members, Sanders stated, “No, because term limits are basically undemocratic. You got term limits right now, and that is throw out the people you don't like. What happens if you have someone you like? I think term limits are undemocratic because people won't be able to vote for people they like."

Sanders’ response isn’t very surprising. The Vermont Senator has been a member of Congress for 27 years. He was first elected to the House of Representatives in 1990. After 16 years of serving in the House, Sanders was then elected to the Senate in 2006. He has since been re-elected to the Senate in 2012 and 2018.
