That's a double edged sword, if you make the term too short they'll have to be even more corrupt to scam what ever they can from American tax payers. If you leave them in too long they can take their time screwing everyone. I just think they should be bi-annually audited by independent parties and the auditing company has to change each time. If the books and emails are missing or out of order the Congress member will have to pay for the extra time it takes to find those items. If too much is missing they would have to step down and be held under house arrest until the matter is resolved.

Members of Congress should be subject to an automatic triggered term limit upon failure to pass a federal budget each congressional session. This “fail-safe” measure would incentivize members to exercise compromise and bipartisanship when entrusted with taxpayer funding of the federal government. Annual, codified, and mandatory spending obligations should never be used as political leverage for unrelated partisan projects.

Formal limits set by law - no. The election system shold be made more competitive so that individuals who do not fulfill their responsibilities can be easily challenged and voted out of office.
