(FixThisNation.com) – GOP Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who recently dropped out of the 2024 presidential race, has stated that what he wants from lawmakers this year is to change Washington.
Only two weeks after the suspension of his 2024 presidential campaign, and while being in the middle of the annual 60-day legislative session, DeSantis noted during a Monday news conference that he wanted state lawmakers to push for amendments to the U.S. Constitution, including setting a term limit for Congress and an amendment for balancing the federal budget.
This is not the first time that these ideas have been brought forward, however, in order for DeSantis to be successful he would need to gain the support of 33 other states.
DeSantis said about the other states that many states have introduced term limits over the last few years. As he pointed out Florida first implemented term limits around 10 to 12 years ago.
However, while in most years DeSantis did not give lawmakers a blueprint for the legislative session, this latest speech appeared to be his last attempt to push for the same arguments that he had been focusing on ahead of the Iowa caucuses. Still, in the caucuses DeSantis did not manage to be anywhere near Trump, losing by a large margin.
Apart from this push, DeSantis also blasted President Joe Biden on foreign policy and immigration. However, he did not provide any solutions that could potentially be used to deal with the problems that Florida is currently facing. Nor did he provide any insight on his plans after he leaves office in 2027.
