Ted Cruz is taking the bull by the horns to help Donald Trump drain the swamp.
Today, Senator Cruz, along with Senator Ron DeSantis, introduced a new amendment to impose term limits on members of Congress.

We know Washington is broken, Trump knows Washington is broken, and apparently so does Ted Cruz.
On this, Cruz stated, “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,” via Cruz.Senate.gov.
He continued, “It is well past time to put an end to the cronyism and deceit that has transformed Washington into a graveyard of good intentions.”
DeSantis also chimed in on the issue, stating, “Eliminating the political elite and infusing Washington with new blood will restore the citizen legislature that our Founding Fathers envisioned.”
He also stated, “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.”
This legislation would no longer allow representatives to camp out in office and continue to collect paychecks on our dime.
In other words, people like Harry Reid and John McCain would have been booted from office a long time ago! There would no longer be a political elite as we know it today.
Far too many of our representatives do nothing more than worry about getting re-elected and forget they are there to serve We the People.
And if Cruz is successful, that is about to end!
