(AmericanProsperity.com) – Many Republicans have hoped for Congressional term limits for years. Such a move could help keep career politicians accountable for their actions and, hopefully, drain the swamp of many dysfunctional DC bureaucrats. To this end, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) introduced a Constitutional amendment that would cap the amount of time federal lawmakers could spend in federal office.
On January 25, Ted Cruz, joined by Senators including Pat Toomey (R-PA), Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Rick Scott (R-FL), re-introduced a term-limit amendment to Congress. He shared the full proposal and its stipulations here:
Today my colleagues and I reintroduced a constitutional amendment to impose #TermLimits on Members of Congress. The amendment would limit U.S. senators to two six-year terms and members of the U.S. House of Representatives to three two-year terms. pic.twitter.com/1izmg5EQ6B

In support of the change, Senator Toomey said this could “infuse Congress with real-world experience, perspectives, and sensibilities.” Others hope this would keep politicians more in touch with the desires of the American people, rather than focusing on re-election.
This will likely be a tough sell in the Democrat-controlled Senate. However, the introduction of this amendment shows both Cruz’s consistency in policy and his dedication to ensuring Americans have lawmakers that represent them well within the hallowed halls of Congress.
