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!

Make sure you get the facts straight before you petition. Congress does pay into the SS system A Senator MUST complete 6 years (one term) to get the retirement @100% Congressman must complete three terms (3 two year terms) gets the 100% retirement package. Spouse gets to continue pension a 100% at death WITHOUT HAVING TO PAY INTO THE ANNUITY like all other branches of government are required to do. Health care, although exempt from ACA, it is no better than the civil service health care and not even close to the fantastic retired military health care benefit. So, make sure ALL the facts are straight before you go through with the petition. (just thought you should know this)

This special treatment of our elected leaders must stop. First of all we are all Americans and should be treated as equals. The special treatment should be save for those who have worked there whole life's and have falling on hard times. The elderly should not be forced for they homes because local,state and federal government has a spending problem. If not for special treatment of our leaders we all would be in a better place.

It's great to pass this around, but it's been going around for many years. If you don't tell people how to effectively find and sign a petition, then nothing will ever come of this except more outrage. I'm no Einstein about the workings of the internet but they tell me you have to go to your own state and sign a petition. There have to be 3/4 of the states officially petitioning for this amendment to override Congress. There are 38 states already there. You need to contact your Congressman's office to be directed to where to go to sign the petition for your state. Don't just read about it---Make it happen!!!!!

THIS IS A VERY FAIR AMENDMENT TO OUR CONSTITUTION. NO ONE IS ABOVE OR BETTER THAN THE AVERAGE AMERICAN. THE ELECTED PEOPLE HAVE PUT THEMSELVES INTO A CATEGORY FAR ABOVE EVERYONE ELSE. WE SUPPORT THE 29TH AMENDMENT AND WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT ADOPTED INTO OUR CONSTITUTION ASAP.

Based mainly on false statements about inequities between congress and citizens. I advise do some research on C.C.A. of 1995 law. Check out L. M. M. comment reference to thoughtco.com.

Equality is Government of the people, for the people and by the people. Equality of every American Citizen should not be questioned. No elected official should received perferential treatment. I totally support this proposed ammendment.

It's really a crime to give yourself exemption status and make everyone else pay. This puts you above the law that you hold us too. After your first term in office you should go back to your regular lives with maybe a 10,000 a month for serving. Or better yet the same retirement the military gets when they reture.
