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 in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn’t seem logical. We should not have elitists who feel they are above the law. It does not matter that members in Government are Democrat, Republican or Independent. The government self-serving must stop. This constitutional amendment is a good way to achieve a common platform that we all should work from. It is an idea whose time has come.
Please ask 20 people in your contact list to email 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 could 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 all members (civilians and elected) of Congress, Judicial and Executive branches of the Government of the United States. Further, with exception of the President, Vice President, Senate Majority Leader and House Majority Leader, all government members (civilian and elected) shall receive the same level of health care, retirement benefits and special benefits as the average working person in the United States. All military, active and retired, retain existing pay policy, as well as existing medical and retirement benefits.”
