Members of Congress already are reined in by the Constitution. The president, too, has significant influence over what they do. And the Supreme Court, of course, has the power to determine whether Congress’ actions follow the Constitution or not.
But U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is proposing a new limit on members: the time that they are in power in Washington.
The Daily Caller reports Cruz is proposing a constitutional amendment that would force members of Congress to abide by term limits.
Two six-year terms for senators, three two-year terms for members of the House.
And then they go home.
Without those limits, some, like Joe Biden, spend virtually their lifetimes in Washington offices, acquiring power and more.
“Term limits are critical to fixing what’s wrong with Washington, D.C. The Founding Fathers envisioned a government of citizen legislators who would serve for a few years and return home, not a government run by a small group of special interests and lifelong, permanently entrenched politicians who prey upon the brokenness of Washington to govern in a manner that is totally unaccountable to the American people,” the senator told the Daily Caller in a statement.
“Terms limits brings about accountability that is long overdue and I urge my colleagues to advance this amendment along to the states so that it may be quickly ratified and become a constitutional amendment,” he said.

There already are multiple co-sponsors, including Sens. J.D. Vance of Ohio, Bill Hagerty of Tennessee, Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming, Roger Marshall of Kansas, Mike Lee of Utah, Stee Daines of Montana, Todd Young of Indiana, Mike Braun of Indiana, Rick Scott of Florida and Tommy Tuberville of Alabama, the report explained.
The requirements for such as change would include approval from two-thirds of the members of the House and Senate as well as adoptiong by three fourths of the states.
EDITOR’S NOTE: What is behind the current war against America’s children? Why are so many adults killing their unborn children right up to the moment of birth, or even after? Why are millions of kids sexualized virtually from birth, and injected with an experimental “vaccine” proven to be both ineffective and dangerous, then as toddlers transported to events glorifying mentally ill, demonically possessed men dressed as women?
Why are America’s children systematically sexualized at school, and by transgender recruiters on social media platforms like TikTok, seducing many into “identifying” as the opposite gender, or a brand-new imaginary gender, then encouraged to take powerful drugs and hormones and have their healthy breasts amputated or undergo chemical or surgical castration?
Why are our children simultaneously indoctrinated with toxic Marxist ideologies like “critical race theory” intended to condition them to hate and reject their own country, parents, faith, race, gender and themselves? Why are they simultaneously being frightened of the future by being fed lurid, terrifying – and groundless – apocalyptic tales of the imminent destruction of the world due to global warming?
No wonder youth suicides have skyrocketed, as have depression, anxiety, addiction and drug overdoses. Indeed, fentanyl, the No. 1 cause of death of younger Americans 18 to 45, destroys multitudes of children annually.
Make no mistake: The harm being done to America’s children in this multi-front war is not accidental: Children are the primary target.
WHY? How can all this be happening in the greatest nation on earth? Who and what is behind it? And HOW CAN IT BE STOPPED?
