Sen. Ted Cruz announced Friday that he will introduce a constitutional amendment to limit the number of terms members of the Senate and the House of Representatives can serve.
Cruz, along with Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., made the announcement in an op-ed in the Washington Post, and said their plan is a great way to implement President-elect Trump's plan to "drain the swamp." The proposal would limit members of the Senate to two terms, while members of the House would be limited to three terms in office.
"On Election Day, the American people made a resounding call to 'drain the swamp' that is modern Washington. Yet on Capitol Hill, we seem mired in the same cycle of complacency," wrote the pair of conservative lawmakers. "The game hasn't changed, and the players remain the same. Thankfully, there's a solution available that, while stymied by the permanent political class, enjoys broad public support."
"Passing term limits will demonstrate that Congress has actually heard the voice of the people," they wrote. "We believe that the rise of political careerism in modern Washington is a drastic departure from what the founders intended of our federal governing bodies. To effectively 'drain the swamp,' we believe it is past time to enact term limits for Congress."
OK - answered my own question - wack job or, as they say in the UK, "nutter." Thanks for the warning, Lee.
The Establishment will block the effort. Really tragic. But, I'm glad Mr. Cruz is trying to do the right thing.
You use the term "Mr." too liberally Jim.
Remember, the snow we get is 90% of the time generated by HAARP, geo engineering and maybe CERN. When it melts is poisons the grounds..that is why production is poor and the quality is abysmal. These chemicals are poison to all life and the goal was for Agenda 21 to be aided with such; same goes for the horrific storms caused by the above also....personal losses, property damage, deaths, etc.,
He is an alien! How can he do this?
Also, anyone else see that Rand Paul is re-writing Obamacare and Trump is o.k. with it?
That is true..so get the Democrats and the card carrying Communists out..it was illegal to put them in a public office..Sotomayer needs to be taken off the Court as she has been and still is affiliated with the Communist party.
While we are on the subject of term limits..where is the legislation that Trump wants...no salaries to follow them and no perks?
