    Starting with the mid-terms in 2014, EVERY incumbent needs to go home. The tank is long overdue for a cleaning but we're the ones suffocating on the outside. Elect lawmakers who will enact term limits and stop these "parasite for life" careers. Both parties need a good voter induced laxative. And then I do believe a good flush would be appropriate.
