Someone is finally saying it again, and I could not be more thankful.
There MUST be term limits for these Rinosaurs and these Dinosaurs in the senate and in congress. President Trump accomplished a TON in four short years, but this is the one major thing he didn’t.
He definitely pushed for it, but it is extremely difficult to get something like this to pass; you cannot expect the people you want to fire to fire themselves.
Ted Cruz is going to pick up the mantle, and continue this quest for true political reform.
Let’s wish him luck….he is going to need all the support he can get to continue the work of draining the swamp.
Take a look:
The Red State Observer had more on the story:
Texas Senator Ted Cruz and five other Republican senators have, once again, reintroduced a constitutional amendment that would limit the number of years a person can serve in the Senate to twelve (two terms).
On his Senate website, Cruz noted that every person of every political stripe supports the idea of limiting the number of years one can serve as a senator and that those who serve far longer than they should are often corrupted and going against what the founders intended.
“Every year, Congress spends billions of dollars on giveaways for the well-connected: Washington insiders get taxpayer money and members of Congress get re-elected, all while the system fails the American people. It’s no wonder that the vast majority of Americans from every political stripe – Republicans, Democrats, and Independents – overwhelmingly support congressional term limits,” said Cruz.
Legacy media outlet Fox News came through with more details:
"It’s no wonder that the vast majority of Americans from every political stripe – Republicans, Democrats, and Independents – overwhelmingly support congressional term limits," he wrote. "The rise of political careerism in today’s Congress is a sharp departure from what the Founders intended for our federal governing bodies. I have long called for this solution for the brokenness of Washington, D.C., and I will continue fighting to hold career politicians accountable. As I have done in the past, I urge my colleagues to submit this constitutional amendment to the states for speedy ratification."
Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., Pat Toomey, R-Pa., Todd Young, R-Ind., Rick Scott, R-Fla., and Mike Braun, R-Ind. joined Cruz in his effort Monday.
"I have long been a supporter of congressional term limits, which would infuse Congress with real-world experience, perspectives, and sensibilities," said Toomey, who has served in the Senate since 2011. "Term limits also have the added benefit of being supported by supermajorities of Republicans and Democrats."
