On January 4, New York Representative Jose Serrano introduced H.J. Res. 15 -- a resolution to repeal the 22nd Amendment and thereby abolish presidential term limits.
H.J. Res. 15 is currently in the House Judiciary Committee, and lacks co-sponsors. In order to succeed, it must pass both the House and the Senate, and have support among at least 3/4 of the fifty state governments.
In 1947, the 22nd Amendment passed in Congress and was later ratified in 1951.
The Amendment was created by Congress to prevent three and four term U.S. Presidents, like Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
Term limits are a good thing and must remain.
