Serrano Puts Forth Resolution to End Presidential Term Limits

Rep. Jose Serrano (D-NY)
Representative Jose Serrano (D-NY) wants to repeal the 22nd Amendment of the Constitution that places term limits on the office of the President.  (Of note, Serrano is a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, which according to my research is an organization that supports Marxist policies.)

No, I repeat, NO President, whether Democrat, Republican, or otherwise, should serve more than two 4-year terms as President, whether continuous or separated by time.

In fact, members of Congress have clearly shown that they need term limits as well.

Why?  Because our "representative" government has become its own aristocracy concerned more with their own power, wealth and status rather than the needs and liberties of the people.  Term limits would only be the beginning.  We must elect representatives who actually understand, support and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Congressman Puts Forward Resolution To End Term Limits On Presidency


Congressman Jose Serrano (D-NY) put forth a House resolution that would repeal the twenty-second article of amendment to the United States Constitution on Friday. This would effectively remove term limits on the Presidency should it be ratified by three-fourths of the States. It has currently been sent to the House Judiciary Committee. The resolution would also have to pass both houses of Congress by two-thirds in each house.
