This is crazy long. I don't think we can avoid a long title entirely, but; how about US Senator Ted Cruz proposes US constitutional amendment limiting terms in both Congress houses? I can't make it shorter than that without mangling it. (Is the Constitution a proper noun?) BRS (Talk) (Contribs) 19:44, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

Now that you mention it, with United States, yes, it's proper. --Pi zero (talk) 20:15, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
Perhaps "US Senator Ted Crus proposes US Constitutional term limits on both Congressional houses"? --Pi zero (talk) 20:33, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
Or "Senator Ted Cruz proposes US Congressional term limits"? Whether it is done by constitutional amendment or another method such as a Bill can be discussed in the article. Green Giant (talk) 21:08, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
I like it. Also, we don't need to say "U.S." twice. It's unlikely the reader won't know what country we mean by mentioning it just once. Darkfrog24 (talk) 02:42, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

Review of revision 4456791 [Not ready][edit]

Minor error[edit]

@Pi zero: as you’re reviewing, in Paragraph 6 it says "it would have to be ratified by at least two thirds of the country's 50 state legislatures." This is incorrect - it needs ratification by three-quarters of state legislatures per the ENWP list of amendments to the United States Constitution. Green Giant (talk) 23:04, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

Heh. Happens I was busy catching and fixing it, then read this; but, not to discourage giving a heads-up like this; thanks! (It's actually in a source: 38 of 50; but to be sure I double-checked it, in the hardcopy US Constitution I keep handy.) --Pi zero (talk) 23:10, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
This was my error. Nice catch. Darkfrog24 (talk) 03:07, 7 January 2019 (UTC)
