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."
Michael, don't forget all the research I have been doing in the last few years. I have a TON of links available - just ask me if you are looking for something and I can check to see if I have it.
And why I suggested be careful, brother Michael. Shalom aleikhem!
"The battle is the Lord's", right Michael!
I tend to gravitate to the electricity of the truth. Shocking, ain't it. Blessings to all!
I agree Lee, when you tell the truth you don't have to try to remember what you told people.
I think Trump knows exactly what is going on - in fact, I have no doubt of it. He is a very, very smart man.
My understanding is that Trump did know what he was getting in to, re: the criminal psychopaths that belong to the cabal. But he believes somebody has to be willing to change the direction they've taken us, and that's why he ran. But unless he's willing to have them all arrested, I don't think there's much he can do to prevent them from exerting their evil influence on America and on the world.
