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. http://t.co/70eBXuEh

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 It’s interesting that so many who consider the First Amendment inviolable believe the Second Amendment is outdated, and the usefulness of the 22nd Amendment changes every few years.
