Reform Party on Government Reform

Party Platform

 


Amendment for Congressional term limits

Our Party, for a multitude of ethical and commonsense reasons, stands behind a Constitutional amendment that would impose term limits on Congress. We will look to put forth the Amendment that there shall be term limits imposed on both houses of congress of two terms consisting of six years each for Senators and six terms consisting of two years each for Congressional seats. This amendment will eliminate legislators from amassing stature and position and the temptation to abuse their power.

No lobbyist gifts; more penalties for corrupt officials

The Reform Party SUPPORTS legislation and rules across all branches of government that enforce the highest ethical standards and effective oversight. That means that elected officials must have as their first loyalty the entire citizenry they represent, not just the people who funded their campaign. This also means that there needs to be clearer separation between elected officials and lobbying and special interest groups. We can not continue the endless recycling of people between elected positions and lobbying groups where there is the clear appearance of conflict of interest.
