Idaho Congressman says he now supports term limits
Freshman Congressman Raul Labrador says after serving in the U.S. House of Representatives and seeing what it’s really like, he’s changed his mind and now supports term limits. Labrador, an opponent of term limits before he was elected to Congress last year told the City Club of Boise on Tuesday that serving in Washington has caused him to change his mind. He says that most decisions made in dc are based on winning elections and not on what’s best for the country. He says he now also supports term limits for Idaho state elective offices, from the state Legislature to governor. Labrador tells The Spokesman-Review that he had contemplated a self-imposed limit, but would not unless those limits applied to everyone in congress.
