Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution

Messages Sent So Far
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 proposed ammendment has my vote. As we are one people, there should be no special perks for special people. That said, "We the people" elected these law makers with the expectation they would work for the people. If they do not, they should not be given a second chance. Vote them out.

Congressman's pay should equal that of the average American. Base this upon the legal numbers of family members in their family and pay them the average wage for that size of family in this country. When it improves for all theirs improves also. Yea get paid to produce for your constituents they do better you do better. They should be paid no more than the people they supposedly represent! Most are privileged idiots who represent no one but themselves or major campaign contributors. Americans should take back the country from the tyrannical rule of the aristocrat society.
