Should there be term limits for federally elected positions?

Just because everyone else sucks at electing good representatives doesn't mean that my senators and representatives need to be term limited.

I used to be against term limits as I believed voters would just vote out the bad ones. But there is so much pork, earmarks, cronyism and gerrymandering that I don't have faith in the voters anymore.

Term limits can lead to some I intended consequences. Politicians that don't have to worry about re-election generally do what they want. The term limits are already in place with election cycles. Don't like them you vote em out.

That's what I used to preach, but people don't vote them out for the reasons I stated.
Hopefully, politicians who are not focused on elections would be more inclined to make tough decisions that we need.
