Beto O’Rouke on Term Limits and Political Contributions

Beto has called for a constitutional amendment imposing term limits on members of Congress and limiting the service of Supreme Court justices to a single 18-year term. He also wants laws to reduce the influence of corporate money in politics and expand voter turnout, including making Election Day a national holiday. He has proposed making low dollar campaign contributions tax deductible and provide a match for contributions up to $500.

Beto says, “The only way to make progress is if every single American is empowered to vote and those who have historically been drawn out of our democracy are able to make their voices heard so that this country can live up to its full promise and potential.”

If elected Beto would sign a new voting rights act, work to end gerrymandering, and institute nationwide, automatic same day voter registration, he would limit House members to six terms and senators to two terms and called for a ban on federal lobbying by anyone who has held federal elected office and prohibit senior staff from federal lobbying for as much as six years.

O’Rouke would also press Congress to pass legislation allowing people without identification to vote after signing a sworn statement of identity. He called for an expansion of early voting, vote by mail, and same day voter registration and legislation limiting states ability to purge voter files.
