And Here’s Cruz’s Amendment On Congressional Term Limits

Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz introduced a constitutional amendment Monday to impose term limits for members of Congress.

  • The legislation would limit  senators to two six-year terms and House members to three two-year terms.
  • “Term limits are critical to fixing what’s wrong with Washington, D.C.,” Cruz said. “The Founding Fathers envisioned a government of citizen legislators who would serve for a few years and return home, not a government run by a small group of special interests and lifelong, permanently entrenched politicians who prey upon the brokenness of Washington to govern in a manner that is totally unaccountable to the American people.”
