It isn’t often that Senator Ted Cruz and I will show up on the same page, but this is that time. Jacob Shamsian explains:
Republican Sen. Ted Cruz introduced a constitutional amendment Friday that would restrict senators to two six-year terms. If it’s passed, it would limit Cruz’s Senate career to its current term.
The operative phrase is “If it’s passed.” Will enough politicians do the right thing? No.
The amendment would also limit members of the House of Representatives to three two-year terms. It’s cosponsored by Republican Sens. Marco Rubio, Mike Lee, and David Purdue.
Let’s see how far a wonderful idea can go.
