House Resolution Introduced to Remove Presidential Term Limits

Dees Illustration

Is one member of Congress attempting to make Obama a dictator?

Congressman José Serrano (D-NY)
introduced House Joint Resolution 15 which would remove the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.

H.J.Res.15 titled "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"was referred to the House Judiciary Committee on January 4th.

The Twenty-second amendment sets the term limit for the office of the President to two four-year terms.

The Twenty-second Amendment
reads :
Section 1. No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. But this article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President when this article was proposed by the Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term. 
Section 2. This article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States within seven years from the date of its submission to the States by the Congress.
The full text of the Joint Resolution is as follows:
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. 
Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled (two-thirds of each House concurring therein), That the following article is proposed as an amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which shall be valid to all intents and purposes as part of the Constitution when ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States within seven years after the date of its submission for ratification: 
Article--
'The twenty-second article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed.'
H.J.Res 15 has no cosponsors and is not expected to be debated in the House Judiciary Committee.  It is a re-introduction of the exact same Joint Resolution by Congressman Serrano, H.J.Res. 17  from 2011.

But the fact that it's even on record shows where some members of Congress want to take America.
