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 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!

The constitution already limits government.
But to many people have dealt with, the extortion, embezzling, racketeering, all out corrupt government.
The government needs more rules against. It had better be passed or I vote we invoke the law of the declaration.
No one should be above the laws! Especially not our leaders and they should be paid with just enough to live on with no vacations , no insurance, oh, excuse me , they should be paid an amount that they can't live on, and made to go and trade , sell pot, or whatever to try to feed their family and tax their wages!
I think our declaration of independence is also protecting and enforcing the avoidence of the mistakes of the past that started this country in the first place!!
The laws get made but they are only enforced to the to the average American. You all can hide behind your smoke screen. But we all know that the higher echelon don't follow the same laws. if they follow any of them. this includes police officers. There is one law for all. "right" I don't think so.
This is truly important.
US Congress and US President should have the same health care system as the Public and the Veterans Administration. Send the President to the Veterans Administration for a check up.
