And I Thought They Only Wanted To Remove The Second Amendment

When I first read this, I thought it was a joke. Evidently it is not. confirms that it is not (because does not retain links, you have to type in the bill number to see this):

Latest Title: 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.
Sponsor: Rep Serrano, Jose E. [NY-15] (introduced 1/4/2013)      Cosponsors (None)
Latest Major Action: 1/4/2013 Referred to House committee. Status: Referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary.

Any member of the House of Representatives or the Senate who votes for this should be removed from office in their next election campaign.

NOTE: This is not as bad as it looks–evidently he has offered this resolution in every new session of the House of Representatives since 1997. I am just uncomfortable that with the level of honesty and transparency in the current administration, they may actually try to pass this. Also note that as of this time there are no co-sponsors.
