Americans want Congressional Term Limits, 80% regardless of political affiliation, support congressional term limits!
This is Holly Robichaud for Breaking News with US Term Limits. Momentum builds for term limits, Oklahoma State Senate passed our Congressional Term Limits resolution. Oklahoma joins fellow states Florida, Alabama, Missouri, West Virginia, and Wisconsin which have passed USTL’s applications specific to the single-subject congressional term limits.
Continued momentum with resolution HJR11 in the US House of Representatives sponsored by SC Ralph Norman. Please visit termlimits.com/mccarthy to sign our petition to urge Speaker McCarthy to bring House Joint Resolution 11 to the floor for a vote. We continue to have new cosigners, we are almost to 100 bipartisan cosigners!
We are doing a special thanks to first-term Democratic Representative Marie Gluesenkamp Perez for co-sponsoring House Joint Resolution 11 with a billboard in her district.
There is momentum in the US Senate as well, Texas Senator Ted Cruz has sponsored as we have mentioned before, Senate Joint Resolution 2, a companion bill to House Joint Resolution 11.
Last week, we reported that 538 had a story saying that Congress today is older than it’s ever been with the average age of a Senator being 64. In a follow-up to that story, California Senator Diane Feinstein age 89 has been out of the Senate for over a month due to health issues. Senator Feinstein was first elected in 1992 and has two years remaining on her term. Major outlets such as Politico are reporting she may never return to the Senate but will not resign and remain in office. This story demonstrates the need for term limits.
Republican presidential candidates Nikki Haley and Vivek Ganapathy Ramaswamy both support congressional term limits. U.S. Term Limits is calling on FOX News Channel which will hold the first Republican Presidential debate to ask each candidate if they support and will promote passage of a congressional term limits amendment if elected. We are also asking the same of each declared presidential candidate.
The corrupt politician of the week. New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez served in the United States House from 1993 to 2006 and has been in the Senate since 2007, he is no friend of congressional term limits. He has been described as the political boss of Hudson County New Jersey by the New York Times and also a believer in politics as usual.
In 2006, he was investigated for possible illegal rental activities. While he was not indicted, this was his first brush with scandal. In 2013, the Obama Justice Department indicted him for bribery, fraud, and making false statements. A trial resulted in a mistrial and 2018 the Justice Department dropped charges due to what they called a legal loophole. The Senate Ethics Committee admonished him. And now in 2022 the Biden Justice Department has opened a new criminal investigation of him regarding alleged payoffs.
