Corruption & Term Limits

I hear folks say we need term limits. While I agree, many who are in, have overstood their stay.
My concern is, this does not address the concerns of corruption, failure to perform their elected duties, reduction of national debt, accountability, standards of law, among other core issues. 
My recommendation is to establish federal law, to be scheduled for review and replaced as a Constitutional Amendment in a set timeline are:
- Performance restriction. Any elected failing to meet 85% in person vote of tabled items for their respective elected office, shall not be eligible for reelection the following cycle. 
- Applied Equality of Representation. No law shall be made for the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the President, Senate, or House of Representatives.
- Anticorruption and Questionable Income. No President, Senator, nor member of Congress shall receive any outside source of income other than their direct pay for their elected office while in the duties of their elected position. This includes gifts, or other monetary valued items. No raises shall be authorized without being set by vote, via represented states and territories with majority of votes being for approved amount requested.
- National Budget. Any member of Senate, or House of Representatives who does not place a vote for the national budget as introduced shall not be eligible for reelection the following cycle. Any Member of Senate, or House of Representatives who increases spending, without a 10% decrease beyond requested increase shall not be eligible for reelection the following cycle. Any Member of Senate, or House of Representatives who proposes increases in any area of spending, outside temporary funding to national defense, natural disaster emergency, or for preparedness for known incoming event, shall require a waiver from their represented state’s governor to run for reelection the following cycle.
- Funded Elections. Spending caps shall be placed for federal elections, along with set placement of media driven advertising. This shall limit profit driven elections, allowing the people equal opportunity to be represented by qualified individuals at the federal level. Caps, shall be proposed, and no increases shall be authorized without being set by vote, via represented states and territories with majority of votes being for approved amount requested, votes shall be set on every fourth even year when increase spending is requested. Media advertising shall be assigned at equal total time per week, per month of election cycle candidates are actively campaigning for. Each state may assign caps to assure over absorption is not affecting local media outlets.
- Once enacted into law, review by states to not exceed 12 calender months. Certified vote shall be placed within six months of state review, to not exceed 12 months.
