Washington, D.C. – U.S. Term Limits (USTL), the leader of the citizen movement to term limit elected officials, today called for swift action from Congress on a constitutional amendment to limit members’ terms.
“The corruption cauldron of Washington, D.C. is boiling over, and it’s harming our country more every day,” said U.S. Term Limits President Philip Blumel. “Congress must propose a term limits amendment immediately to restore confidence in this broken institution.”
The statement comes in the wake of a federal indictment against Rep. Corrine Brown, a 12-term Florida congresswoman who stands accused of using a phony education charity as her own slush fund. She is charged with mail fraud, wire fraud, concealing facts on financial disclosure forms, theft of government property, obstruction and filing false tax returns.

Nashville, TN – Tennessee has been named No. 4 in a recent analysis of the 10 Best States for Retirement 2016 by Kiplinger.com, a Washington, D.C.-based publisher of business forecasts and personal finance advice. The report rated all 50 states based on quantifiable factors that are important to retirees.
Affordability, especially in terms of lower taxes on retirees and lower health care costs, was a key factor in the research. The economic health of the state, as well as the overall health of the population, was also taken into account. States with prosperous populations of residents age 65 were also important in the comprehensive analysis.
Washington, D.C. – This enhanced color view from NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft zooms in on the southeastern portion of Pluto’s great ice plains, where at lower right the plains border rugged, dark highlands informally named Krun Macula. (Krun is the lord of the underworld in the Mandaean religion, and a ‘macula’ is a dark feature on a planetary surface.)
Pluto is believed to get its dark red color from tholins, complex molecules found across much of the surface. Krun Macula rises 1.5 miles (2.5 kilometers) above the surrounding plain – informally named Sputnik Planum – and is scarred by clusters of connected, roughly circular pits that typically reach between 5 and 8 miles (8 and 13 kilometers) across, and up to 1.5 miles (2.5 kilometers) deep.
