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!

America is in the grips of a mental disorder which is destroying virtue and morals. Our constitution is being attacked and everything that was uniquely good and Godly and American being destroyed. It's called liberalism. Check your local political sociopaths voting record and see why the democrat party is the new home of Marxism. Wake up all good people . We all have been lied to .
NOBODY is above the people except God!

Congress, you better grab hold of your boot straps.
The idea is good but should explicitly apply to all past unequal laws as well as future ones. The language of "make no law" could be exploited to only mean new laws, people want this to be retroactive; repealing all past unequal laws as well.
It seems very unfair that we do not abide by the same law. I am a veteran of the USMC and from the top of chain of command to the very bottom we all abided by the rules set forth by the ucmj. This tom fullery that is being played out today is unacceptable I hope to see a change in our Congress I'm tired of seeing people sit and ride Congress not making a difference and still being handed benefits for their services in the state of California more specifically the los angeles area (LAUSD) have terrible schools systems we need to fix. Most people In The area can barely make ends meet with all these laws being imposed insurance has gone through the roof and no one has put a stop it. Seems to me there is a special interest for Congress.
