Northboro Tea Party Tackles Term Limits

Monday, January 21, 2013

 

With Congressional approval ratings at an all-time low and partisan gridlock over the so-called "fiscal cliff" and debt ceiling putting politics before progress, the Northborough Tea Party will be sponsoring a public meeting on Tuesday, January 22, to discuss Congressional term limits in an effort to get Washington working again.

Brian Herr, a former Republican candidate for Congress in Massachusetts' 3rd district, will deliver a talk entitled “Do We Need Term Limits? A Non-Partisan Discussion” at 7p.m. Tuesday at the Northborough Free Public Library, 34 Main Street.

“The recent ‘fiscal cliff’ debacle has highlighted the utter dysfunction of the political process in Washington," Herr said. "Spending cuts, budget deficits, and an ever-increasing debt ceiling will dominate the news in the months and years ahead.”

While the specific problems the country is currently facing may be different, said Herr, the underlying ones are the same.

“Elections come and go, yet the problems are only mounting. Without fundamental reform, little will change across the political landscape of America,” he said. “The Founding Fathers envisioned blacksmiths, farmers and merchants representing the people of our nation in the legislative process. They expected individuals to serve their country then return to their everyday lives.”

Tuesday's talk at the Northborough Free Public Library is free and open to the public, and the Northborough Tea Party encouraged high school students in particular to attend and learn about the process of government.
