Because it would take an act of Congress to put them in place. Next question.

They do they get a two year term and the population gets a choice on their future.

Why do you hate freedom?

The constitution doesn't limit Congressional service even though it would be beneficial to all in the long run if they did.

A constitutional amendment would be required.

Is it possible that perhaps our founding fathers didnt forsee the power of the lobby?

They do. Two years and their term is up.

It's stupid people who keep reelecting them to more terms.

Term limits are limits on the number of terms they can serve.

Because idiots continue to re-elect idiots. The founding fathers actually thought the populace would be smart enough not to continue to re-elect bad politicians.

Senators should not be elected at all, it worked quite well with appointees for the first 100 years of the Republic. The appointees were more in touch with the desires of the people of the states as they were given the job as a result of who the people chose to be governor.
