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.

Presidential term should be one 6 year term so a president is working for the country for the whole term not worrying about re-election Senate and house should also have term limits as well

Extinguishing term limits apply to communism. Our country was founded upon democracy and has been a successful country as a result. Do not destroy what was established with God as its leader.

The 22nd Amendment to the Constitution doesn't need to be repealed. What it needs instead is to have term limits added for Senators and Representatives to go along with term limits for the President. No one needs to be a congressman long enough to retire from the job. It should be a short term job where they go and live under the laws that they wrote.

Absolutely no change in the amendment. Eight years may even be too long based on how things are going now with this fundamental change in America!
