Term Limits Now- Politics Should Never Become The Family Business

State Representattive Mark Cohen apparently likes to read books and he has charged the state (on his expense reports) for $28,800 in book purchases over the last two years. It would appear he is a greedy, sneaky piggish politician. But my main point is this- politics should never become the family business and that is why I support term limits.

What does that have to do with Rep. Cohen you ask?
  • Well, Mark Cohen has been in the state house for about 20 or so years.
  • His father, David Cohen, was a Philadelphia city councilman for about 35 years until he died recently at about the age of 92 years. David Cohen was a bigtime invalid for the last few years. On many occasions, he was wheeled in to work and appeared barely conscious. If he had expired in his wheelchair in the Council chambers, I don't think anyone would have even noticed.
  • Cohen's mother worked for her councilman husband for many years. Now Mrs. Cohen wants to run for her late husband's seat. And Mrs. Cohen is about 88 years old.

Let's face it families like this are greedy, grasping arrogant pigs and that is why we need term limits because I bet there are many more families just like this piggish one! Here is the link to the story if you want to read the story about the book loving Rep. Cohen!
