Trump based his campaign on a few key ideas, one of them being draining the swamp that exists in the capital. Voters are fed up with corrupt politicians who are only concerned with lining their own pockets.
Since the election, Trump has been working on this pledge and has even fired all lobbyists who were on his transition team. Now he is forming a top quality group of people to form his cabinet.
Now former presidential candidate Senator Ted Cruz is joining forces with Trump in this fight.
Sen. Ted Cruz announced Friday that he will introduce a constitutional amendment to limit the number of terms members of the Senate and the House of Representatives can serve.
Cruz, along with Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., made the announcement in an op-ed in the Washington Post, and said their plan is a great way to implement President-elect Trump’s plan to “drain the swamp.” The proposal would limit members of the Senate to two terms, while members of the House would be limited to three terms in office.
“On Election Day, the American people made a resounding call to ‘drain the swamp’ that is modern Washington. Yet on Capitol Hill, we seem mired in the same cycle of complacency,” wrote the pair of conservative lawmakers. “The game hasn’t changed, and the players remain the same. Thankfully, there’s a solution available that, while stymied by the permanent political class, enjoys broad public support.”
