With Washington shutdown due to career politicians playing games to score cheap political points, Ted Cruz discovered the easy to end this charade once and for all.
To be sure both sides of the aisle share some blame for the gridlock but more than anything it comes down to political cowardice.
Greed and cowardice are the coins of the realm and without them, you will not succeed in the swamp. We will all pay a heavy price for the weakness of our leaders.
Ted Cruz has a workable solution to the problem and one that will damage the swamp beyond repair. It’s time.
From Cruz For Senate: “U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rep. Francis Rooney (R-Fla.) today introduced 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.
“For too long, members of Congress have abused their power and ignored the will of the American people,” Sen. Cruz said.
“Term limits on members of Congress offer a solution to the brokenness we see in Washington, D.C. It is long past time for Congress to hold itself accountable. I urge my colleagues to submit this constitutional amendment to the states for speedy ratification.”
Francis Rooney stated, “The American people support term limits by an overwhelming margin. I believe that as lawmakers, we should follow the example of our founding fathers, Presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, who refused to consider public service as a career.
Our history is replete with examples of leaders who served their country for a time and returned to private life, or who went on to serve in a different way.”
The amendment was cosponsored by Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), and David Perdue (R-Ga.).”
