I would propose we drop the "for life" part of that. Serving your country as a representative in government, was never meant to be a career. You serve your elected time, then go back to your own business. Unfortunately, we have too many carreers in office. I would also propose that those who have served in Congress, are forever barred from becoming lobbyists, advisors, or anything else that would amount to influence in government, directly or indirectly.
