Top Republican breaks with Trump over term limits

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said he won’t push to eliminate term limits for committee chairs, despite President Trump’s recent tweet that the practice has encouraged too many GOP retirements lately.

“You can always look at something,” McCarthy of California, said Tuesday when asked about Trump’s suggestion that the GOP drop the term limits. “But, I love the idea of fresh blood.”

Republicans installed a three-term limit on chairmanships and ranking positions when they won the House majority in 1994.

In recent weeks, a wave of GOP lawmakers announced they are retiring, hindering Republican efforts to win back the majority in 2020.

Among those heading for the exits is Reps. Mike Conaway of Texas, who just concluded a six-year term heading the Agriculture Committee, and Rob Bishop of Utah, who is serving his final term as ranking member of the Natural Resources Committee.

“House Republicans should allow Chairs of Committees to remain for longer than 6 years,” Trump tweeted.

It's McCarthy's choice, not Trump's. :shrug:
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.

I think Term Limits have served us well.

"Time we end high capacity magazine politicians".  "You don't need more than three terms to kill a country".

You go Daniel Horowitz.  He says they are all leftist.  All RINO's retiring.
