Ted Cruz Has Introduced A Very Bold Constitutional Amendment!
There are some people that when they get elected into office they want to see what kind of good that they can do for the brief time that they are there.
Then you get the people that simply want to make a career out of being a politician. When you think about it career politicians are one step above welfare cheats. Think about it for a second.
They get just about everything paid for throughout the course of their lives. I mean really, when was the last time you ever heard of a career congressman having a hard time paying their electric bill.
What people loved about Texas Sen. Ted Cruz during the Republican primaries was that he was a constitutional conservative who followed through with what he preached.
For example, last month Cruz made a move to help President-elect Donald Trump ‘drain the swamp’ by announcing he’d introduce legislation to limit Congressional terms.
Today, it became reality.
From U.S. Senate: WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) today proposed an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to impose term limits on members of Congress. The amendment would limit U.S. senators to two six-year terms and members of the U.S. House of Representatives to three two-year terms.
“D.C. is broken,” said Sen. Cruz. “The American people resoundingly agreed on Election Day, and President-elect Donald Trump has committed to putting government back to work for the American people. It is well past time to put an end to the cronyism and deceit that has transformed Washington into a graveyard of good intentions.”
Cruz continued: “The time is now for Congress, with the overwhelming support of the American people, to submit this constitutional amendment to the states for speedy ratification. With control of a decisive majority of the states, the House of Representatives, and the Senate, we have a responsibility to answer the voters’ call-to-action. We must deliver.”
“Term limits are the first step towards reforming Capitol Hill,” said Rep. DeSantis. “Eliminating the political elite and infusing Washington with new blood will restore the citizen legislature that our Founding Fathers envisioned. The American people have called for increased accountability and we must deliver. Senator Cruz has been instrumental in efforts to hold Congress accountable, and I look forward to working with him to implement term limits.”
Say it with me, folks…
Bravo, Mr. Cruz.
