McConnell Furious, Ted Cruz Filing ‘Drain the Swamp’ Amendment! Term Limits for Congress!
At Conservative Daily by Joe Otto --
On Friday, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) formally announced that he is introducing a Constitutional amendment to implement term limits for Congress.
This “Drain the Swamp” amendment would ensure that when people arrive in Washington DC, they work for the American people, not for their own re-election. That is the problem we face now, especially in the House of Representatives.
Senator Cruz made the announcement alongside Rep. Ron Desantis (R-FL).
"On Election Day, the American people made a resounding call to 'drain the swamp' that is modern Washington,” they declared.”
"Passing term limits will demonstrate that Congress has actually heard the voice of the people.”
Mitch McConnell came out earlier this year and said that there would be no vote of term limits. Of course, the Senior Republican Senator who has been in office for 31+ years would oppose term limit legislation…
With your help, we delivered 260,000 faxes to Congress demanding that they Drain the Swamp and start with term limits.
Now, less than a month later, we have a Constitutional amendment being introduced…
Mitch McConnell will continue to fight against this common sense proposal. He will do everything in his power to make sure this amendment never sees the light of day.
It is up to YOU to make sure that’s not good enough!
Send your FaxBlast to Congress right now and DEMAND they support the Drain the Swamp amendment and remove anyone from GOP leadership who stands in its way!
This is about eliminating the permanent political class in Washington DC.!
