No one has been able to explain to me why young men and women serve in the U.S.
military for years,
risking their lives protecting individual’s rights and
freedom and after suffering horrendous injury, only receive 50% of their pay.
Meanwhile, Politicians hold political positions in their luxurious
and safe office suites of the capital, protected by these same men and women,
and receive 100% full pay for their retirement after serving only one
term. It just does not make any sense.

national attention if news networks will broadcast it. When you add this to the
below, just where will all of it stop?
This will take less than thirty
seconds to read. If you agree, please pass it on. This is an idea that we should
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 prosecution for sexual harassment) while ordinary citizens must live
under those laws.
The latest is to exempt themselves from the Healthcare
Reform… in all of its forms. Somehow, that doesn’t seem logical or right.
We, the American citizens, did not agree to have an elite class 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 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 .”
