    Dem. Rep. Introduces Bill to Abolish Presidential Term Limits —​


    By Madeline Morganstern
    January 6, 2013



    A Democratic congressman on Friday yet again introduced a resolution seeking to repeal the 22nd Amendment, thereby removing the limit on how many terms a president may serve in office.

    It’s a regular occurrence for longtime Rep. Jose Serrano (D-N.Y.), who has introduced similar legislation every Congress going back at least through 2001.

    The 22nd Amendment bars any president from serving more than two full terms in office. It was passed by Congress in 1947 and ratified in 1951 as a reaction to Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s four-term presidency.

    Amending the Constitution would require the approval of both the House and Senate and three-fourths of the states.

    There's already a thread on this. And as others have already pointed out in that other thread, this same congressman proposed this same amendment during Clinton's and Bush II's tenure.

    I don't have a problem with term limits for congressmen. Maybe it would get them to actually work toward a legacy or the good of the country instead of only working on getting re-elected.

    Speaking of term limits, I sometimes wonder if the POTUS should have only one six year term.

    The OP clearly is not interested in facts, just lies he and others on the right hope might be perceived as ‘truth.’
