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!

Congress and the president fantasizing that they're above the law? Preposterous! Apparently it isn't absurd enough that millions of American voters made the same terrible mistake at their local ballot box on 11/01/2016 by choosing a lolcow as our president, and how many lolcows would be offended by said wisecrack about the worst presidential candidate ever is anyone's guess!

I support it! They should also add the President of the United States. He who I shall not name feels he is above the law. The Constitution does NOT apply to him.

Although it is uncommon, it may be treated by removal from the prostate defect accompanied by making use antibiotics and NSAIDs to deal with the soreness. Non-bacterial prostatitis makes up about approximately 90% of all prostatitis cases; however, researchers have not to establish what causes these conditions. Some researchers believe chronic non-bacterial prostatitis occur as a result of unknown infectious agents while other believe that intensive exercise and lifting could cause these infections.

The most critical measure to adopt to ensure a wholesome prostate is to go for regular prostate health screening.

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.

There is also a proposed 28th amemdment which is promoting the over turn of the Supreme Court's Citizen's United decision of 2010 which allow unlimited campaign donations and says that corporations have the same rights as individuals pertaining to this. Can the items mentioned above and getting big money out of politics be combined in one amendment proposal. ??

I’m not sure creating a 28th amendment is the best way to handle these problems. I think it would be easier to write laws to fix these problems as an amendment could take 100’s of years to be ratified. All of the things talked about needs addressed and fixed ASAP. We are all citizens of the USA and should be treated equal, there are no elite citizens in the USA.

Why do Children of Congress members not have to pay back their college student loans like all other students have to do? Members of Congress can retire at full pay after ONLY one term. When someone serving in the military for 20 years only gets 50% of their income upon retirement? and most American's have to skimp and save their ENTIRE LIVES to be able to retire at all. Why did Members of Congress exempt themselves from many of the laws they have passed, under which ordinary citizens must live. Why do members of congress not have to have the same medical insurance they want us citizens to have? Why do congress members get to have free medical for the rest of their lives but we have to put part of our income into medicare and social security for our entire working lives in order to get medical insurance when we retire, which doens't even cover all of our medical bills? this 28th amendment needs to be done so you understand what its like for us typical American citizens. Now we learn that congress has exempted themselves from Healthcare Reform, in all of its aspects. We will no longer tolerate people who were elected as public servants think they are elite and putting themselves above the law. We demand fairness.
