Tell Congress: Keep Presidential Term Limits, Oppose H.J. Res. 15

New York Representative Supports a Resolution that would Abolish Presidential Term Limits ...

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.

Tell Your Lawmakers to OPPOSE the Repeal of the 22nd Amendment, H.J. Res. 15. Sign the petition and message lawmakers below.

I think some countries have 5 & 6 yr limits & would like to see the US go to a 6 yr one term. Also get all the $$ out of politics.

Though this is certainly not the first attempt at such (this representative has tried this before himself), and most bills do not even come out of committee, the wave we are currently riding as a nation has us dangerously close to moving such a proposal forward.

Once again, the president and the Democratic party are trying to change the rules to suit them. If the Republican party was trying this the Dems would be beyond angry. Please stop this power grab attempt. Term limits for the president must stand!

Not only should repeal of the 22nd amendment be opposed, there should be term limits for Senators and Representatives.

When a hardcore leftist is given an inch, he/ she will take license to steal a mile. I have felt strongly for some time that such a dangerous empty suit being elected once was shocking enough, but the second time clearly indicates that there are dangerous forces in this country which are at work aggressively. The lines of defense must be established. The regime will try to confuse citizens into simply shutting it all out. Do not be deceived by this.

I think term limits should be administered at the Congressional level as well. Life time congressman tend to get corrupt, as time goes by.

Term limits are awesome! Under no circumstances should a sitting president be allowed more than 2 terms. If this was a sitting Republican president, this issue would never have been presented.

We need term limits, lower salaries, no retirement plan, no health plan, no perks for ALL elected officials. It's not public "service" if you are compensated better than most countries' royalty to do it.
