drainin' that swamp

Sooo, we have a cabinet filled with "men of action" (i.e., crooks, like their boss*) and a congress that honestly thought (and you can't make this up) that they were in the clear to quickly move back to pre-Abramoff levels of corruption. No, they're going to have to keep it a bit under wraps for a while.


*The faulty baseline asuumption has always been that private sector scam artists and military sector bureaucrats are in some way superior to the old establishment types.


As far as the epicly corrupt Congress- they're going to find out that the folks who bought and paid for them are going to be looking for a bigger ROI this time around.

A different type of crook isn't necessarily an improvement.

Re: drainin' that swamp




Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Florida Rep. Ron DeSantis introduced a constitutional amendment on Tuesday that would impose term limits on members of Congress, following through on their December announcement about the proposal.

"D.C. is broken," Cruz said in a statement Tuesday evening. "The American people resoundingly agreed on Election Day, and President-elect Donald Trump has committed to putting government back to work for the American people. It is well past time to put an end to the cronyism and deceit that has transformed Washington into a graveyard of good intentions."

The proposal would limit senators to two terms (12 years total) and representatives to three terms (six years total). President-elect Trump campaigned on reining in Congress by implementing term limits, though it is unclear if the incoming administration has been involved in the proposal, which comes during Congress' first week in session this year.

Not the worst idea that anybody ever floated.


But a lead balloon. Interests aren't going to make the sort of investment it takes to get somebody entrenched in the system over the few years it takes to get it done good and right and then want to have to start all over again, just when they become dependable.
