In light of the obscene health care reform bill from which congressmen exempted themselves, there is a movement to amend the Constitution so this sort of ruling aristocracy cannot persist.....
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 Representatives and all other branches of the Government; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and Representatives and all other branches of the Government that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States".
Who would have thought this was necessary in America? When the people allow their representatives to seize more and more power for themselves, human corruption and self-interest always, ALWAYS play a role in subsequent legislation. We don't have a ruling class in America that is exempt from the same laws as everybody else. I am in total support of this amendment and I would like to see any politician from either party defend his opposition to such an amendment.
