Brothels aren't the only things Harry Reid wants abolished

In his Tuesday address before the Nevada state legislature, the Senate Majority Leader called for ending term limits on state officials.
"We don't need artificial term limits," Reid said during his speech. "After all, we already have natural ones. They're called elections."
Even with 31 new lawmakers in Assembly and Senate, Reid referred to term limits as restrictions that "...don't limit terms, they limit our ability to move forward."

Nevada voters approved term limits in 1994 and 1996, and term limits enable new voices to enter the legislature. Given Nevada's nearly 15 percent unemployment rate, the state could use fresh ideas in Carson City.
