22.We elect a U.S. Representative for how many years?
Answer: Two (2)
Explanation: In most jobs, if you do your work well, you can continue working there almost as long as you like.
In general, this is a good thing, but some people think that the United States Congress should be different.
When we elect (or choose) a U.S. Representative, he or she works as a representative for only two years.
This is known as his or her term, or the length of time that a person works in a public position.
Once those two years have ended, if he or she wants to continue to work as a representative, he or she can be reelected for another two years.
This can continue indefinitely (or forever or without end).
Some people think that this is a good idea, because it lets us reward representatives who do their work well by allowing them to continue to represent us.
But other people believe that there should be a term limit, which would be a maximum number of times that a representative can be reelected for two-year terms.
