Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution

This amendment makes congress citizens of the united states again!

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 am not able to use my name due to a current case that has not yet been resolved and we are filing civil rights, ADA and HIPAA complaints for several violations of those laws but the accusations were false, I am a RN and can prove it but after $17,000 the attorney advised that the judge is not going to follow the law (he had already said he wouldn't - in court because legally he didn't have jurisdiction over the case but said he wasn't going to follow that law and he was keeping jurisdiction. Every rule, regulation was not followed and several laws were violated against my daughter and granddaughter, there is no accountability. Agains our better judgement we were told by my daughter's attoreny and my attorney that an ACD was the best way to get through this but that just gives them 6 months to make more stuff up and require services that are no longer necessary to further destroy my family. there are 3 generations fighting from 2 states for what's right and are up against brick wall not able to get anywhere in NYS. We were told this particular count is about reproach and are a "rogue county", the family court system is above reproach (this all from her attorney). It is disheartening and an emotional, spritual and mental battle that affects every aspect of all our lives especially my grandchild's. We are financially broke trying to fight for what's right and we are far from over. It's been almost a year now and there just doesn't seem to be an end in site and the fear we live with everyday that if we say any words they will twist and turn them into something they are not or completely lie which they have done including comitting perjury with no repercussions. We were told by the attorney that the evidence needed for family court is so low that we would have to pursue it through the appellate court and then to supreme court if we wanted justice which would take anywhere from 5-10 years and between $50k to $100K. We may already lose our home because of the costs and we couldn't do that so my daughter was basically forced to consent to the 6 month ACD. This must stop! There should be a jury present during the trial just like any other especially because families are being treated worse than criminals are and have less protections. The court rooms should be open public forums to allow family, friends, reports, and others into the room so they can see how absurd this all is.

Amen, equality for all!!! Even though it will never be since we have no way to monitor the government officials to make sure they are being fair and applying all laws to everyone the same. Not letting them get away with all kinds of crap, then, getting help to cover it up from everyone around them. Just because they are rich, or because they are the government and the second or third generation family member in office, blah blah blah. Whatever the reason, whoever. You are, we should all be sharing everything the same inspite of differences in our sex, religion, Creed, education, family status or financial status ect. It was supposed to be that way from the starting point of the government. So if it hasn't been done by now it will never be done period. But it's a wonderful thought.

The Founders gave Americans the power to amend the Constitution without going through Congress in Article V. They knew that power corrupts. They also knew that once a person attains power they rarely give it up. This is one of the agenda items in The Convention of States. Go to for more information.

This is pure BS! It does NOT exist! Your first clue is that there is no author name. Second there is no date. Stop letting people like this cause you to get upset and look foolish by reprinting this nonsense.

All Americans should have EQUAL laws and rights. No one should be exempt because of their position or station in life.

let the bastards live on social security let the public has to, why do they deserve any better than regular citizen. take their high priced salary and cut it down to hourly wage like 75.00 per hour,then see how many runs for office. stop the same pay after out of office. this will help pay national debt. just cut 100,000 from each salary .
