Encouraging lawmakers to self-impose term limits after they’ve served for 12 straight years by cutting their pay to $1 would achieve the goal of getting new blood into the legislative branch without going through the lengthy process of amending the Constitution to enact term limits. Lawmakers could keep serving the public if they want to.
There shouldn’t be de facto term limits on members of Congress imposed through massive pay cuts after 12 consecutive years of service. If voters keep electing them to office members of Congress should get continue to get paid a full salary regardless of how long they’ve served. This would give too much power to those not in office.
