The Democratic Party has an age problem

....Democratic leaders across both the legislative and executive branches are generally older than leadership on the other side of the aisle, leading to some restlessness among the lower ranks who have been patiently awaiting their turn at the top.

Part of the problem for Democrats is one of recruiting. Historic losses over the last decade in statehouses across the country have not helped create a bench of energized new lawmakers. Further Democrats have had difficulty winning new seats in the House since the tea party wave of 2010 and redistricting in the wake of that year's census.....

Not only term limits, but age limits.

Well, Someone needs to introduce a bill. It would be called the Short Bus Act. of course it would fail to pass because 99 percent of them would be out of a job if it passed.
