Put simply, term limits have proven to be a brain drain on legislatures. Policymaking is a hard job and an often thankless one at that. There are very few easy, clear-cut decisions in Congress, and policy alternatives are often fraught with unintended consequences that surface long after initial votes. Experience and effectiveness are entwined […] Experienced legislators therefore should be welcomed rather than ushered away from the institution where they can do the most good.
