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 would also like to see term limits imposed. Our country was not founded on career politicians and was not meant to be. As Government gains more power tyranny takes a foothold.
I am so very disgusted with the Federal government-our "representatives" do what is best for themselves and puts themselves on a pedestal above the American people. They are no better than us and should have to abide by all the rules like the rest of us. The politicians were elected to represent the AMERICAN PEOPLE They are our EMPLOYEES and I love my country and if I was asked to choose between Money and Country my answer would be COUNTRY
We The People, not You The People
What biggets we have in congress. Send them all to hell where they belong NOW!
I am a teacher with student loans left to pay UGH. I got in debt pursuing my Master's degree because I wanted to do more for my students. I feel like I do more serving for my country than my elected officials who are paid to serve us, not self-serve.
Im submitting this because I have loved this country. However, we have a president that does not abide by the constitution and it seems like all our elected reps are doing NOTHING. So, this is most likely going nowhere!
I agree and it should be retro-active. Congress should reap what they sowed.
