28th amendment? (anywhere, USA)

28th amendment
Please Read, and forward. This will only take 1 minute to read!
28th Amendment, 35 States and Counting.
It will take you less than a minute to read this. If you agree, please pass
it on. It's an idea whose time has come to deal with this self-serving
situation:
OUR PRESENT SITUATION !
Children of Congress members do not have to pay back their college student
loans.
Staffers of Congress family members are also exempt from having to pay back
student loans.
Members of Congress can retire at full pay after only one term.
Members of Congress have exempted themselves from many of the laws they
have passed, under which ordinary citizens must live.
For example, they are exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual
harassment.
And as the latest example, they have exempted themselves from Healthcare
Reform, in all of its aspects.
We must not tolerate an elite class of such people, elected as public
servants and then putting themselves above the law.
I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent, or
whatever. The self-serving must stop.
Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for
imposing unlawful burdens upon their states.It only takes 38 (of the 50)
States to convene a Constitutional Convention.
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.
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 ..."
This is an idea that should be passed around, regardless of political party.
Congressional Reform Act of 2017
1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in
office and receives no pay when they're out of office. And, no more perks
go with them.
2. Congress (past, present, & future) participates in Social Security. All
funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security
system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system,
and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for
any other purpose.
3. Congress must purchase their own retirement plan, just as ALL Americans
do.
4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay
will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the
same health care system as the American people.
6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American
people (i.e. NO MORE INSIDER TRADING!!!).
7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void. The
American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women. Congress
made all these contracts by and for themselves.
Serving in Congress is an honor and privilege NOT a career. The Founding
Fathers envisioned citizen legislators should serve their term(s), then go
home and go back to work ... not get all kinds of freebies.

Bag Lady #2, for the Federal Reserve
