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!

Elected officials should not be exempt from the parameters they establish making rules and regulations for We The People to abide by! Secondly, anyone promoting eliminating The Electoral College either failed their Civics course or never took Civics. To promote the elimination shows a serious flaw in their education and/or their comprehension skills!

Electoral College should not be eliminated. Attempts to do so are an example of our elected officials not understanding its purpose and how the government was designed to work.

To Sam P. Saying it over again doesn't make it any better an idea. The electoral college is needed to keep large states from controlling everyone else.

I didn't realize just how far the benefits reached. Holy cow what a mess. No wonder these elected officials are aloof. Time for a shakedown. And please, it's time to make all citizens serve time in government. Yes, a draft if you want to call it that. But really more a civil servant gig forhis/her country. In exchange, no cost tuition for college. That'll get the financiers all yanked out of shape. You receive help "after" you serve. Heal spurs don't disqualify you for a thing. Even if they you actually have them.

When you run for the Senate or the House, it is assumed that you want to serve our Country, not seek a new lucrative career. You are no better or worse than the average American. You deserve no more or less than the average American. If that is/was not your career goal, then it is time for you to resign, go home and take care of your family, without any perks, or gifts, or promises of greater things. In other words, live and work like all Americans do. This is a great Country, it has always been a great Country, do your part to keep it that way. Be a good example for your children.

I have just 30 minutes ago sent this out. A friend in another state sent it to me. Congress really ruffels my nerves. They think they are above the Law of the Land. It's time they come off their mountain and live as the people they supposedly represented (not).

In it's current form... it's to damn general. I see a lot of wiggle room for the criminally manipulative. It needs to be reworded to be more inclusive. 28th Amendment: "Congress shall make and pass no law that exempts the Members of the United States Senate and the Members of the United Sates House of Representatives from any and all laws that the two Chambers of Congress pass that apply to the Citizens of the United States and the District of Columbia." (the District of Columbia is not part of the United States...Believe it!) Congress shall make no rules in the United States Senate and the United States House of Representatives that give Members of both Chambers of Congress greater Medical, Educational, Financial Benefits or unfair advantage over other Federal, State, Municipal Employees or Employees in the Private Sector of the United States or the District of Columbia. While in the service of their office or in their retirement benefits plan. Any Senate Rules or House of Representative Rules that currently apply to, and are made by the United States Senate and the United States House of Representatives that unfairly put the aforementioned Members of the two Chambers of Congress above other Federal, State, Municipal or Private Sector Employees... in the law or in equity and that are contrary to the letter and spirit of our United States Constitution shall be abolished. " That'll do it! Who's doing this petition? I need to get this to them.

Also there should be term limits. After 12 years, they become entrenched and corrupted.

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!
