A regular rotation of elected representatives is vital for the long-term health of a functioning republic. Setting the limit at 18 consecutive years of serving in Congress strikes an appropriate balance between encouraging turnover in the ranks of Congress and allowing effective politicians to serve.
Term limits make Congress less effective and if a member of Congress can get re-elected again and again, then they should be able to keep their seats. If people don't like it, then they should vote differently.
