Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States  Constitution

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 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!

I agree 100% with what Rep. Bill Flores said "I firmly believe that Congress should live under the laws it passes and if Americans are subject to Obamacare then my team and I should be as well. That is why I am one of the 38 members of Congress who signed onto a lawsuit challenging Obamacare subsidies provided Members of Congress and their staffs."
I am tired on the Government making laws for every one but them. Just because they hold a Government job does not mean they can do anything they want to. I am tired of them being above the law. They should be held in account of their actions just like every one else, the are no different.
they should make no more then we pay our armed forces
The time has come, we should all have to live by the same rules/laws...........
Need to require compensation for Congress to be put to a popular vote and NOT be allowed without it.!!!!!!!
the President should be included in this
it's about time
ALL citizens should be treated equally - isn't that why our Nation was founded.......
