A New Reason for Term Limits

(Picture from AP)
Rep. Ahn "Joseph" Cao, from Louisiana, was the only Republican who voted for Obamacare. His reasoning for voting as he did is all you need to read in order to convince yourself to support term limits for elected officials:

According to The Times-Picayune, he said over the summer that "voting against the health care bill will probably be the death of my political career."

With the "yes" vote, Cao may give himself a fighting chance.
So let me get this right...he figured that if he voted his conscience, and with his party and his convictions, that he would lose re-election and his "political career" would be over.

News flash, asshole: If you were true to yourself and your convictions, you would have voted "no" and taken the consequences. But since all you were worried about was your "career" in elected office, sucking on the public teat, you voted selfishly.

This is EXACTLY the reason we need term limits. Whatever happened to citizens who wanted to serve their neighbors for a term or two, then return to their hometown and go back to their old job?

This prick should be run outta town on a rail. Wait, they don't have rails in Louisiana. Never mind.

The people of New Orleans deserve this dumb-ass...or would you rather have the boob that took bribes?
