Ted Cruz Wants Term Limits for Members of Congress
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) introduced a constitutional amendment last Friday that would restrict Senators to two six-year terms. If it's passed, it would limit Cruz's Senate career to its current term. The amendment would also limit members of the House of Representatives to three two-year terms. Currently, terms in both chambers of Congress are unlimited. "For too long, members of Congress have abused their power and ignored the will of the American people," Cruz told ABC News. "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." For the amendment to be passed, it would need to be approved by two-thirds of both chambers of Congress and then ratified by 38 states. More here.
