Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them. It only takes 38 (of the 50)

An idea whose time has come!
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

people think. That is irrelevant. It is incumbent on the population to
address elected officials to the wrongs afflicted against the populace...you

to become the law of the land...all because of public pressure.
I'm asking each addressee to forward this Email to 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
