Former presidential candidate and full-time “maverick” Senator Ted Cruz, is one of those Republican’s who isn’t concerned about what others think, especially when it comes to the issue of term limits.

The Texas lawmaker and constitutional conservative has been pretty consistent and quite vocal in his desire to curb career politicians, who seldom leave their comfortable perch voluntarily, once elected.

Moreover with the election of President-elect Donald Trump slated to become the 45th Commander-in-Chief, January 20th, Cruz’s move last month to help Trump “drain the swamp” by formally announcing his intention  to introduce legislation to finally limit congressional terms, may finally become a reality.

Cruz along with congressman Ron DeSantis (R-Fla) purposed an amendment to the Constitution that in effect would impose term limits to all members of Congress, the new amendment would limit senators to two six-year terms and house members to three two-year terms.

No doubt both career Democrat’s and Republicans will feel the squeeze in their attempt to perhaps justify their continued participation within the esteemed legislative bodies, suggesting that the people should be the only ones to determine their future.

However Cruz acknowledged the winder  issue saying; “D.C. is broken, 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. It is well past time to put an end to the cronyism and deceit that has transformed Washington into a graveyard of good intentions.”

He continued: “The time is now for Congress, with the overwhelming support of the American people, to submit this constitutional amendment to the states for speedy ratification. With control of a decisive majority of the states, the House of Representatives, and the Senate, we have a responsibility to answer the voters’ call-to-action. We must deliver.”

DeSantis also weighed in saying; “Term limits are the first step towards reforming Capitol Hill, 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. Senator Cruz has been instrumental in efforts to hold Congress accountable, and I look forward to working with him to implement term limits.”
