Citizens Demand Term Limits After Corrine Brown Indictment

 

U.S. Term LimitsWashington, 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.

AAA says “Brexit” leads to Lower Gas Prices

 

AAATampa, FL – Britain’s vote to leave the European Union could impact Americans in a variety of ways; one of them could be lower gas prices. The price for crude oil, which is globally traded on the stock market, declined by nearly $2.50 the day after the “Brexit” vote.
