28th Amendment to US Constitution

I receive, just as you do, lots of emails that are chain-letter types. I do not support chain letters and they all end with me.
However, I read them to see what they are about and sometimes I check into them for friends who send them to me.
I use www.snopes.com to check veracity. They do an excellent job.

Here is a chain letter I received this week from a friend. She just said,” looks interesting, thought you should read”.

It is right up my alley.
I have stated and believe that Congress should not be exempt from any laws that they pass.
They likewise should pass law that includes and not exempts them.

The most recent example, health care.
Congress has debated and passed two versions of a Health care package.
The problem is, no matter which side of the debate you are on, they,Congress, are not recipients of this bill.
They still have some of the best health care in the world.
Either they should grant all americans the same health care that they get or they should get the same health care they are foisting upon us.

Here is the chain letter I received. read it and think about it.
It is a sentiment and not a reality.
We do not seem to have the legislators who rise to the “Profiles in Courage” level to propose this in the chambers.

This is such a simple thing to do. Read all the way to the end. I hope you see the value of the simple statement.

For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress.
Many citizens had no idea that Congress members 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.
Then 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 believe such a law already exists, they(congressman and Senators)just choose to ignore it.
