H.J.Res. 15: Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.
Introduced: Jan 04, 2013 (113th Congress, 2013–2015)
Sponsor: Rep. José Serrano [D-NY15]
Status: Referred to Committee
So, congressman Jose Serrano from Dist 15 in New York introduces resolution 15 to repeal 22nd amendment to constitution. What insanity!

We’re still a couple of weeks from the inauguration, but Rep. Jose Serrano (D-N.Y.) is already looking forward to 2016 and beyond. The congressman yesterday reintroduced a bill to repeal the 22nd amendment establishing term limits for the president.
Govt Track proposing an amendment to abolish prez term limits? HELL NO. America can’t afford to have a dictator. govtrack.us/congress/bills…

@gabby_hoffman Good luck getting that ratified.

@gabby_hoffman Since it has to pass both house of Congress AND get approval by 2/3 of the states…not likely to happen.

Even before that, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee would have to bring the bill to the floor for a vote. That’s not likely, seeing as Serrano introduced the same bill last January, and it died in committee.
@chadowenbrand Didn’t it come up under Clinton too?

It does come up quite a bit. It’s interesting that so many who consider the First Amendment inviolable believe the Second Amendment is outdated, and the usefulness of the 22nd Amendment changes every few years.
