Nobody’s Email: The 28th Amendment

Nobody Gets Email

Here’s something that just ticks me off: Millions of kids in the United States, cannot afford to go to school. But…look what our sweet congressmen get for THEIR kids–and their STAFF!…They don’t have to pay back their student loans, and you can be sure those kids go to Harvard and Yale. So guess who is paying for all those rich millionaires children’s education?

YOU!

You, like me, will read about this today, and forget about it tomorrow…because we feel powerless to do anything about it. Nevertheless…maybe we should start making a “naughty Congress tricks” list..Hire a Santa to stand outside the Capitol every day with the list….(Which will be about as long as Pennsylvania Avenue and at least educate the rest of the world to the big sucking sound of greed housed in the halls of deciding how much money we can fork out to them.

Found this interesting, Children of congress members do not have to pay back their college student loans. How nice!

Monday on Fox news they learned that the staffers of Congress family members are exempt from having to pay back student loans. This will get national attention if other news networks will broadcast it. When you add this to the below, just where will all of it stop?

35 States file lawsuit against the Federal Government

Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.

This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, please pass it on.

This is an idea that we should address.

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. 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.

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. 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 .” 

You are one of my 20.

NOBODY NOTES:

The recent fiasco with Jesse Jackson Jr…getting elected then ‘retiring’ because he is ‘depressed’ about committing crimes, and be allowed to retire with full benefits, and, how much did this cost?

Billions.

  1. I was reading just today (can’t recall which site – I think it might have been a ‘gold and silver report’ site, an article pointing to a little aprehended section of the Tax bill which is about to expire (the fiscal cliff bizzo).

    It was pointing out just how upset Obama’s voting youngsters are going to be when along with the reversion to the previous tax deductibility schedules the Student Loan exemptions will be cancelled. This will mean that Graduates who had been able to deduct $2500 pa from their tax bill for interest paid on their loans will no longer be able to.

    So a vote for hope and change will get only small change in their pockets and no hope for a break.
