Priority One: Amend the Constitution

Some may say that the priorities of our elected officials are out-of-whack. Of course, no one has said that about the administration of The Savior, Barack Obama; he's going to cure everything that ails us. Why then is one of the first acts of Congress being presented under The Chosen One to repeal the 22nd Amendment of the Constitution? The following is the actual text:

111th CONGRESS/1st Session

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.
