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!

Each and every member of the house and senate should have to obey all the laws that the rest of the people do. Do not pass a law that you are not willing to abide by yourself.
Republican and Democrats alike are enjoying these "benefits" that are OUTRAGEOUS!!! The public should be made aware of these "perks". And, the PEOPLE should and can put a stop to them. We should all get behind this change. NOW!!!
It is one is thing to be treated with respect while serving this country for the good of all people , but when they leave office they are civilians again, and should not keep receiveing benefits as if they were. The people of the USA should vote on benefits given to those who serve this country . and their porformance should be taken into account...
for the people by the people only
all of you that are on the dole should be ashamed of yourself and do the right thing for All American's
in stead of taking all you can get and screwing the American public!!!
And also work on the monopoly position of lawyers in our government. Plus balance the budget.
If we are all equal, why do members of Congress have special benefits and exceptions that do not apply to all citizens?
I DO vote in every election.
Release Fannie and Freddie NOW or face the shame and history you will create for yourselves, your party and America. The average non-investor will eventually learn the truth despite the lies the media and gov. are trying to get the ignorant to believe. You will not get away with it, guaranteed.
Congress should have to abide by the same laws as the rest of the citizens.
