Sen. Ted Cruz found out that a young upstart whippersnapper who appears to be too big for his breeches has to be put in his place. He was unable to get solid GOP support in the Senate for his move to suspend the Affordable Care Act.
The old lions have to show the need for tenure and longevity to have a voice in government. Kind of like the experience our president lays claim to.
Maybe it is time for another look at putting in term limits for Congress similar to the 22nd Amendment. Maybe two six-year terms for the Senate and try six two-year terms for the House.
Give some new faces a chance to bring some new looks to government. The Founding Fathers never thought of these representative positions as lifetime careers.
