    Default Bill in Committee to Allow Obama's Third and Fourth Terms Read more at http

    01/08/13

    It seems like Jose Serrano is trying to reintroduce a bill that would amend the Constitution and allow any president to serve for an unlimited period of time. That includes Barack Obama.

    If he were to serve forever, then he'd be King.

    From theDC:

    It would amend the Constitution.New York Democratic Rep. Jose Serrano reintroduced a bill in Congress on Friday to repeal the 22nd Amendment, which places term limits on the U.S. presidency.

    The bill, which has been referred to committee, would allow Barack President Obama to become the first president since Franklin Roosevelt to seek a third term in office.

    H.J. Res. 15 proposes “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.”

    The bill is a reintroduction of H.J. Res. 17, which Serrano introduced in Congress in January 2011. It was referred to the House judiciary committee, but did not make it to a floor vote.

    Told ya so! I don't think they have the votes to pass this, YET. Need super maj in both houses and 3/5s of the states to ratify. Ain't going to happen. But it could happen if the constitution is simply folded up and tossed on the fire.

    70 members of the Senate, and 278 Members of Congress would need to vote yes on this to even get it heard by the States. 37 states would need to vote yes to amend the Constitution.

    It'll never happen.
    Its dangerous to be right, when the government is wrong.

    Wait a minute! If the foundation for our laws is folded up and tossed on the fire... shouldn't that necessarily cause all the rest to collapse, become null and void essentially be the last straw?

    Why should we be constrained by a constitution and law when the "leadership" isn't?

    Dateline: September 21st 1789 "Gentlemen representatives and congressmen, I think there's a possibility that in the future, some idiot may try to say the people don't need military rifles, and that this proposed Second Amendment is about hunting. I think we should make sure Shall Not Be Infringed is a little more clear". "Nonsense my good man! Even a half-wit would know this amendment isn't about hunting, but as a safeguard against tyranny by government!" "That will never happen!"
    Common sense is so uncommon nowadays it ought to be reclassified as a super power

    Proposal in Congress to Repeal the 22nd Amendment
    by Bryan Schott
    01/07/2013 | 1884 views | 0 | 6 | |
    A Democratic Congressman wants to abolish Presidential term limits.

    Mediaite reports New York Rep. Jose Serrano is proposing a bill to repeal the 22nd Amendment. If it passes, it would allow Barack Obama to run for a third term.

    The bill has been referred to committee and officially states that it seeks “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.”

    Serrano’s bill was also introduced as H.J. Res. 17 in January 2011. It was sent to the House judiciary committee but never reached the floor for a vote.

    Just in case it seems Serrano has a particular affinity for only Democratic presidents, it should be noted that he proposed similar bills in 2001, 2003, 2005, and 2007 during the presidency of George W. Bush. He also attempted the bill in 1997 and 1999, during Bill Clinton‘s administration. He tried again in 2009, in the second year of Obama’s first term.

    Unfortunately for Serrano, none of these attempts have ever reached a vote.

    He’s also not the first member of Congress to support a repeal of the 22nd Amendment. Representative Steny Hoyer (D-MD) proposed a repeal during Clinton and Bush’s presidencies and current Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) wanted a repeal in 1995.
