Thoughts on election cycles

I am tired of congressional representatives running for office every two years.

They must spend most of their time raising money and campaigning for re-election.

I propose a four-year term for U.S. representatives, coinciding with presidential elections.

Also an eight-year term for U.S. senators, one-half every four years.

A four-year federal election cycle would, hopefully, give us a year or two of rest from political pushers.
