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.
“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.”
Cruz and DeSantis argued that term limits would also “change the calculus” of those who serve in Congress, and said it would open more more roles in leadership and break up the “permanent political class” on Capitol Hill.
WE ALL KNOW THAT CONGRESS WILL NEVER VOTE THIS IN…THIS IS SOMETHING THAT SHOULD BE LEFT TO “WE THE PEOPLE” TO DECIDE IN A FAIR ELECTION!!
