BREAKING: Ted Cruz Submits MAJOR Constitutional Amendment

By

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is looking to alter the course of American politics in a big way.

And he’s likely to succeed, if President-elect Donald Trump follows through on his election campaign promises.

Trump vowed to “drain the swamp” of Washington politics.

Cruz said that one important step toward realizing that goal was introducing term limits for US congressmen.

On Tuesday, Cruz made good on his commitment by introducing a Constitutional amendment to that effect.

The amendment would limit senators to two six-year terms. Members of the House of Representatives would be limited to three two-year terms.

No more all-powerful congressmen wielding power for decades on end.

“D.C. is broken,” said 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.”

The senator continued:

“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 urged his fellow congressmen to get behind the amendment, noting that it is the will of the American people.

Polls have shown that as much as 74 percent of Americans want term limits for their representatives in Washington.

“Term limits are the first step towards reforming Capitol Hill,” said the amendment’s co-sponsor, Representative Ron DeSantis (R-FL). “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.”
