A friend of mine, another Steve, sent this email to me. I have sent it along to more than 20, and I thought this would be a great post for you to copy and send to your friends…especially the liberal ones.
An idea whose time has come
For too long we have been too complacent about the workings of Congress.
Many citizens have no idea that members of Congress
- receive retirement checks till death; of the same pay earned after even only one term,
- they don’t pay into Social Security,
- they specifically exempted themselves from many laws they have passed
(such as being exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment)
The latest is to exempt themselves from Health Care Reform they just passed…
Ordinary citizens must live under those laws.
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.
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 elected officials, 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 .”
