    Angry Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution

    Regardless of any personal preferences (wether a Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever), I’m sure you’d be interested if the law applied to you would be different for those whom are suppose to represent you.

    That is why I passed this on to you.

    Monday on Fox news we learned that the staffers of Congress family members are exempt from having to pay back student loans. This will get national attention if other news networks will broadcast it. When you add this to the below, just where will all of it stop?

    35 States file lawsuit against the Federal Government
    Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.
    This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, please pass it on. This is an idea that we should address.

    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 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 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.

    If each person that receives this will forward it on to 20 people, 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."

    Start to copy/paste and email people....

    If you want to pass that ammendment, like 500 laws will have to be banned and backtracked...
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    This is a great idea, but they'll never pass it (regardless of party affiliation). Why would they take away things that they earned by making backroom deals over in the past? I can't see them taking anything away from themselves.
    I see a lot of you don;t like them not having to pay back student loans, what bothers me MUCH more is that they get to retire with full pay after one term - do you realize that's just 2 years for a representative? That's ridiculous, retirement with full pay after 2 years is just silly. Imagine how much that has cost us over the years.

    It's such horse$#@! the blatant favoritism politicians show for themselves/families.

    Wasn't either the 27th or 26th amendment made to prevent congress from giving themselves pay raises? It shouldn't take a congressional amendment to prevent just the student loan part. They should pay like everyone else.

    Don't get me wrong, when he ran last time he had some interesting ideas. However, there was no way he was going to get any of them passed when even his own party didn't support them.

    BTW, one vet to another, thanks for your service - SSgt (ret), USAF, Pararescue

    What makes you think it is possible to get back to the original intent?

    Agreed, I just think maybe we strayed so far from the path we can't even find where the original one was.

    ^ And they would love nothing more than to take that amendment away... as they continue to whittle it down.
