Do you remember my tirade about our Congress “This Time, I Am Really Stepping On Thin Ice”, posted back in January?
It looks like I hit the right nerve! Newspaper and magazine editorials have expanded on this subject (not due to my little posting!)…. Just a few days ago I received this succinct letter in my Email. I am posting it to all of my readers, because we can collectively do something about it. I am not certain if it is a disguised Tea Party missile or a Liberal outburst…Regardless. It fits today's dilemma.
Really important! Hope you all do it!

An idea whose time has come!
For far 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 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.
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."
