Cruz Draws Support in Pursuit of Term-Limits
Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R), who has received a level of scrutiny over his objection to certifying the election results of the 2020 presidential election, has also had ethics complaints filed against him. The argument is that his objections “lent legitimacy” to the storming of the Capitol that took place on January 6th, 2021.
However, the Lone Star state Senator has disregarded the complaints, and he’s since shifted his focus to reintroducing legislation that would ensure a Constitutional amendment that would impose congressional term limits.
Joining him in making the case for term limits if Florida Senator Rick Scott (R), who threw his support behind the legislation that would limit U.S. Senators to two six-year terms and Congressional members to three two-year terms.
In reintroducing the legislation, Senator Cruz criticized the idea that “every year, Congress spends billions of dollars on giveaways for the well-connected: Washington insiders get taxpayer money and members of Congress get re-elected, all while the system fails the American people.”
Claiming that the need for term limits is supported by a bipartisan effort, they should be implemented because “the rise of political careerism in today’s Congress is a sharp departure from what the Founders intended for our federal governing bodies.”
