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."
Shalom Michael, and all here today. On the central East Coast, Norfolk/ Va. Beach/ Chesapeake, thawing out from a snow storm; 14" in my front yard.
May I suggest that all read, study and pray for understanding through the Holy Spirit for spiritual understanding of Matthew chapter 6? I believe it to be an essential in these times we are in.
Blessings and peace to all my fellow patriots.
Prayer is our best answer to what the lunatics are doing; it seems there are more of them, insane, than there is of us that are sane! You are right, we are moving quickly towards the final days and the entry of the final Anti Christ which will be a Jew. We must be ardently attentive.
Each and every legislator, in the last 16 years, but more so the last eight years is guilty of treason and/ or high treason. When they failed to call up the Sargent of Arms to fulfill his job description, after the first act of treason, they all should have been taken from t heir jobs and replaced.
I totally agree- they should have all been charged with misprision of felony, and removed from office. They all knew Obama had committed multiple acts of treason, and it would have taken only ONE of them to submit a bill for impeachment. No one cared enough - they all care more about lining their pockets than they do about their country. Sad...
