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!

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.

But this has all the misinformation thats been going around since 2009, check Urban Legends, or any google search. If it was updated with correct information, I'd be all over this, but sadly this is just not correct.

A noble suggestion, but as as a bicycle maker from Ohio named Wilbur said to his brother on the beach at Kitty Hawk, NC, "It will never get off the ground Orvile. Too many moving parts." Count me in.

I totally believe there should be a screeching halt put to Congress and their self-serving actions with no regard for the American people. Putting the fox in charge of the henhouse so to speak. An amendment is a good idea.

I totally agree with the passage of this Amendment. Those bastards(any elected official who think that they are better than us(we elected them) should live by the same laws as all US citizens(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.

Thanks to all who help with this issue.

I bet Obamacare would be repealed and replaced overnight if the Senate and Congress fell under the same coverage as the American people.
