The 28th Amendment

   They you should never discuss politics in public but I don't think this falls into that category. Unless my local congressman reads my blog.        

   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.
     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  ."
