87% of Americans Support Congressional Term Limits
WASHINGTON, DC, November 28, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — U.S. Term Limits is calling out Rep. Ken Calvert (R-CA) for refusing to sign the U.S. Term Limits pledge with a series of billboards educating constituents of his refusal to support term limits for Congress. The billboards are located on I-10 at Sunset Avenue and I-10 at Monterey Avenue. The U.S. Term Limits pledges call for members of Congress to co-sponsor and vote for the U.S. Term Limits Amendment limiting U.S. Representatives to three terms and U.S. Senators to two terms and no other proposal.
The U.S. Term Limits amendment was introduced at the start of Congress calling for six years total in the U.S. House of Representatives and twelve years maximum in the U.S. Senate. In the House, Representative Ralph Norman (R-SC) introduced House Joint Resolution 11. In the Senate, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) filed Senate Joint Resolution 2, a companion resolution to House Joint Resolution 11. It has 14 Senate co-sponsors. There are currently 135 members of Congress who have pledged to support the U.S. Term Limits amendment, the highest-level support ever for this amendment. Representative Calvert refuses to support congressional term limits despite overwhelming support among voters for congressional term limits. Polling from Pew shows 87% of Americans regardless of political affiliation support congressional term limits.
“Americans overwhelmingly support congressional term limits and want their representatives to support legislation that will enact congressional term limits,” said Nicolas Tomboulides, Executive Director of U.S. Term Limits. “Yet Representative Calvert repeatedly refuses to sign the U.S. Term Limits pledge. These billboards are designed to educate his constituents of his refusal.”
