To 2016, and beyond:

Democratic New York Rep. Jose Serrano reintroduced a bill in Congress 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 β€œan 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.

One challenge for Serrano — among many — is how to word the legislation so presidential term limits would automatically reinstated the next time a Republican is elected president.

If repealing the 22nd Amendment doesn’t work, look for Serrano to go for the next best thing by seeking to repeal the Second Amendment twice.
