Proposed 28th Amendment

In case you have not heard, there is a populist movement in the U.S. to amend the Constitution.  Here is the text of the proposed amendment:

“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 ALL of the citizens of the  United States of America “.

For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress.  Many citizens had no idea that members of Congress can retire with the same pay after only 1 term; that they don’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, nor does it seem reasonable.

We do not have an elite that is above the law.  It doesn’t matter if they are Democrat, Republican, or Independent.  The self-serving must stop.

    Egregious, outrageous, and unfortunately, not surprising. Our citizenry has evolved into a self-serving lot, blatantly reflected in the folks we select to serve “we the people.”
    I appreciate this issue coming to light, and I will pass it on.
