DeMint term limits bill is back! Rand Paul, Mike Lee on boardSubmitted by pblumel on Fri, 04/15/2011 - 09:40
Big news! Yesterday, Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) reintroduced his Term Limits for All amendment bill which would limit the terms of House members to 3 and senators to 2 via constitutional amendment. He was flanked by the good guys in the Senate on this, with Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Mike Lee (R-UT) among the 10 initial sponsors.
Co-sponsors to S.J. Res. 11 included New Hampshire Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte, Oklahoma Republican Sen. Tom Coburn, Nevada Republican Sen. John Ensign, Texas Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson, Utah Republican Sen. Mike Lee, Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul, Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, Pennsylvania Republican Sen. Pat Toomey, and Louisiana Republican Sen. David Vitter.
This is not a great surprise as Rand, of course, is a enthusiastic backer of term limits and had specifically endorsed the DeMint bill during his campaign. See: http://www.dailypaul.com/114531/rand-paul-endorses-demint-te...
