Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz was joined by a handful of GOP colleagues on Monday in reintroducing a constitutional amendment imposing term limits on members of Congress.
Cruz tweeted out the text of the resolution filed by himself along with Sens. Mike Braun (Ind.), Marco Rubio (Fla.), Rick Scott (Fla.), Pat Toomey (Pa.) and Todd Young (Ind.), explaining that "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."
Cruz's office also provided background on the senator's previous efforts to put term limits in place for federal lawmakers, noting that:
Also in 2019, the conservative Cruz even gave a nod to far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) when she called for making it illegal for members of Congress to become lobbyists after leaving office.
"Here's something I don't say often: on this point, I AGREE with @AOC," Cruz wrote in reply to one of the congresswoman's tweets. "Indeed, I have long called for a LIFETIME BAN on former Members of Congress becoming lobbyists. The Swamp would hate it, but perhaps a chance for some bipartisan cooperation?"
