Proposed 28th Constitutional Amendment

A friend sent this to me, and I thought I would share it with you here:

For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress.  Many citizens have no idea that members of Congress can retire with the same pay after only one term, that they don’t pay into Social Security, that they specifically exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed while ordinary citizens must live under and abide by those laws.

The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare Reform Bill that just passed.  Somehow, that doesn’t seem logical or fair.  America does not have an elite that is above the law.  I truly do not 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:

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 members of both Houses of Congress; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to both Houses of Congress that does not equally apply to the citizens of the United States.”

Send this to a minimum of twenty people on your address list, and 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.
