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
President Obama could get 3 terms if H.J.Res 15 abolishes term limits

Americans around the nation were shocked Friday as they heard about H.J.Res. 15. H.J.Res 15 proposes an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the Twenty-second Amendment. This would remove the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President. Rep. José Serrano (D- NY15) introduced the controversial joint resolution on Friday, the second day of the 2013 legislative session.

The last President to serve more than two terms was Franklin D. Roosevelt. Roosevelt served three full terms as President and was elected to a fourth term. Roosevelt died 83 days into his fourth term in office.

Congress passed the Twenty-second Amendment on March 21, 1947. The required number of states ratified it in 1951. There have been numerous attempts to repeal the Twenty-second Amendment, including a previous attempt by Rep. José Serrano. Rep. Serrano attempted to repeal the Twenty-second Amendment with H.J.Res. 5 in 2009.
I know its not likely but we can still dream about it.

I guess Bloomberg is considering a presidential run and might be in this guys ear/wallet to get that pesky term limit thing out of the way so he wont have to worry about it later.

I think Republicans should seriously consider passing this bill. Think of the possibilities!

President Reagan Says He Will Fight to Repeal 22nd Amendment
TOM BROKAW, reporting:
President Reagan is making one thing clear in his last two days in office. As former President Reagan, he will remain active speaking out on issues that concern him. In a White House interview, Reagan told me that among other things, he will push for a repeal of the 22nd Amendment that limits a President to just two terms.
President REAGAN: This is the only office that is elected by all the people. I think that is an infringement on the democratic rights of the people. And now that I’m out of office, so that they can’t accuse me of wanting to do it for myself, I’m going to see if I can’t mobilize the people to demand the repeal of that Amendment. It is an invasion of their democratic rights to vote for whoever they want to vote for and for however long.
BROKAW: So we will see a lot of Ronald Reagan speaking around the country?
REAGAN: Yeah.

There would be some LOL's on the campaign trail as you announce your plan to sterilize everyone on welfare and use their children to create soylent green meanwhile Don is campaigning in the red states promising to give them back their right to deny abortions to raype victims.

Why would McConnell want to repeal it in 1995? Or Harry Reid in 1989?
Fishy.
