Term Limits Now Term Limits Now US Capitol We will be keeping track of a numbers of bills in the 114th Congress, but one we want to bring to your attention is Senate Joint Resolution 1 (link is external), which would impose a two term limit on Senators and a three term limit on members of the House. The Amendment is sponsored by Sen. David Vitter, and already has 10 co-sponsors, including such names as Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, Ron Johnson and Marco Rubio. The Amendment has been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley. From our recent reader survey, we know a lot of you support term limits -- and for good reason. Term limits aren't a perfect solution to what ails Congress, but putting a cap on the amount of time any member can serve in office helps return us to the Founders' belief that regular rotation in office was essential to liberty. As John Adams noted, regular turnover would instill: “the great political virtues of humility, patience, and moderation, without whic ...

Everyone agrees that NSA reform legislation is needed. So why hasn't it happened? Last year, Edward Snowden made headlines around the world with news of the extent of the National Security Agency's surveillance programs. You might have thought that Congress would react by passing legislation to address the issue. But with Congress now on break until after the November elections, that's looking increasingly unlikely. Politico's Tony Romm has an in-depth story examining what happened to the leading reform proposal, the USA Freedom Act. It passed the House in May, and a version sponsored by Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT), the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, was introduced in July. And then... nothing happened. The calendar ran out without Leahy's proposal getting a vote by the full Senate. There are a lot of issues where Congress doesn't pass legislation because there are deep partisan divides, or because action is opposed by deeply-entrenched interest groups. But NSA reform isn't like that. President ...

NEWS RELEASES JUL 25 2014 SESSIONS: NO LAWMAKER SHOULD SUPPORT BORDER BILL THAT DOESN’T BLOCK OBAMA’S PLANNED EXECUTIVE ACTIONS WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, called on the American public today to rally Congress against the President’s openly declared threat to implement, by executive order, the amnesty that Congress has rejected: “How Congress chooses to act in the coming hours and days will determine whether the President succeeds in his plan to nullify the immigration laws of the United States. Just yesterday, TIME magazine reported that the President is considering a grant of ‘work authorization for perhaps several million undocumented immigrants.’ Permitting those illegally present in the U.S. to work and take jobs is contrary to plain law, which the President has no power to change. Yet Democratic members of Congress have openly crowed about these planned executive actions. It has now been extensively reported that these e ...

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) questioned the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary over the ever growing number of unaccompanied children flooding into South Texas as a result of Obama’s immigration policies. DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee at the Capitol Wednesday morning. Sen. Cruz laid out the enormity of the problem to Secretary Johnson by stating, “In 2011, there were roughly 7,000 unaccompanied minors who were apprehended. In 2012, that number rose to 14,000. In 2013, it rose to 24,000.” In a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas, Cruz expounded, “In 2014, your agency is estimating …read more Source: Breitbart
