Two Republican lawmakers are pushing a proposal that would impose term limits on Capitol Hill.

It’s a constitutional amendment proposed by Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Florida Representative Francis Rooney.

The idea is to limit senators to two six-year terms and house members to three two-year terms.

Cruz said members of Congress have abused their power for too long, but term limits could change that.

Three other GOP lawmakers co-sponsored the amendment.

The concept also gained traction among some Democrats, including former Texas representative Robert Beto O’Rourke, who is a potential White House hopeful.
