Harrisburg, Pennsylvania — Marc Scaringi, candidate for the Republican nomination to the U.S. Senate from Pennsylvania, chastised Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey for his vote against a Senate resolution, offered by Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina, calling for a Term Limit Amendment to the Constitution. DeMint has proposed an Amendment in the past, which would limit members of the House of Representatives to three 2 year terms and Senators to two 6 year terms. Scaringi supports DeMint’s Term Limit Amendment and has made passage of such an amendment a central issue in his United States Senate campaign.
Scaringi responded to the vote yesterday saying, “Regrettably, Senator Jim DeMint’s Term Limit Amendment resolution failed to pass in the U.S. Senate. Not surprisingly, Senator Robert Casey voted against it. Senator Casey will not give up his power without a fight! It is time to retire the Senator, and others like him, who fail to see we are to be governed by citizen legislators and not career politicians.” Scaringi added, “Passage of a Term Limit Amendment is part of my Free America Agenda, and if elected to the U.S. Senate, I will join Jim DeMint, Pat Toomey, Rand Paul and others who support this much-needed reform. Thomas Jefferson rightly observed that too much time in power is neither good for the individual serving, nor the long term best interests of the nation.”
