Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution

Messages Sent So Far
An idea whose time has come
For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress. Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress could retire with the same pay after only one term, that they didn't pay into Social Security, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed (such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live under those laws. The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform that is being considered...in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn't seem logical. We do not have an elite that is above the law. I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever. The self-serving must stop. This is a good way to do that. It is an idea whose time has come.



Have each person contact a minimum of Twenty people on their Address list, in turn ask each of those to do likewise.


In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one proposal that really should be passed around.


Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution


"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States."

I sure wish I could take credit for this but it was sent to me in an e-mail....I support it. I hope you as the lawmakers realize how angry the American people really are. So lets see if you really have our interests at heart and see you put this into law!

You're gonna have to make it a lot longer than that. I would love to see this ratified, it really has to be, though I highly doubt Congress will pass it through without giving themselves soo many open loopholes that they won't just **** it up.

Most American citizens have to work hard hours to barely make a living wage, thanks to the shortsightedness of the U.S. Congress. Meanwhile, they enjoy the FREEDOM TO RAISE THEIR OWN SALARIES but do not have to pay into the Social Security Trust because the American citizenry PAY THEIR INSURANCE AND RETIREMENT for the rest of their lives. What part of that is fair ... in any sense of the word?

This is only fair. All Americans are to be equal under the U S Constitution. Let's keep it that way.

It is high time for this amendment since the Constitution is the supreme law of the land and no one is above the law.
