Nobody’s Email: The 28th Amendment–OR the Elite Hogs That Rule Us

Nobody Gets Email

I got this email and it just couldn’t wait two more days. I got to thinking: I’ve never heard ONE person in Congress, or running for Congress…EVER mention the perks they will get when they get elected.

There some stuff left OUT of this, like the perks X Presidents get after leaving office.Congress one

It now cost millions to run for Congress, and billions to run for President, pretty much putting most of the country out of the race. And yet…these men and women are more than willing to spent those millions and billions…

They’re not stupid: We are. It’s the other perks we don’t know about that upsets me.

Pass this around: (Thanks to madmemere)

Hope you will read, heed and forward.. This will only take 1 minute to read !

28th Amendment, 35 States and Counting are in favor!

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:

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 payback student loans. Congress two

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 …”

  1. I don’t know about a lot of these but I do know Congress does NOT get full pay retirement after one term. There is a calculation that happens based on years of service, pay and percentage. If they have less than 30 years service (which we should all help them strive for) and less than age requirement they must wait until they are 62 to collect. If this one is wrong I am betting some of those others are as well.

    • You  know, I’ve read SO many different things on this subject, what they get, what they don’t get, etc. and like most disinformation, it’s hard to verify ANYTHING in the government because so MUCH of it is secret. I suspect, the truth is well hidden for a reason. What I do know, is most government workers, get perks well beyond what the job deserves. How often I have heard teachers wail about their low salaries, but never mention how they get three months paid vacation, and most of them get advanced degrees, computers, paid vacations to Hawaii…for “teachers’ conferences.” This happens in all government departments. The perks are never ending, it’s no wonder we are so much in debt. Remember, almost HALF of the people work for the government.

      • I worked for the Feds 31.5 years so I know about the “perks”. Believe me they are not what you think. Federal employees used to have an outstanding retirement program but that went away in 1986 or so. Now they (me) rely on SS and their own savings through TSP program. Not all agencies run wild like, was it HUD?, in Vegas. That was criminal and most employees really do look out for the resources diligently. Now teachers do have it good in some ways. They get paid year round but their pay is $X a year divided by 12 if they want or divided by 9. Yes they do get the summer off but a lot of them do after school stuff or grade papers at night, have parent conferences, etc. It’s not like they get off at 3:30 and their day is done. But they also get a week at Xmas and a week over spring break. I’m not sure what they do then. I do know somethings they take classes over the summer for continuing credits. Plus they put up with kids all day. That alone deserves a medal. Lol.

      • I’ll agree with the taking care of kids part! I have no idea how they do it. Still, the teachers unions…that’s a whole another subject. They still get paid, and the worst of them cannot be fired. But I have read, that the government jobs pay three times more for the same job as the private sector. And I have nothing against government workers…..they work as hard as the next guy…it’s just that sooner or later, as the private sector jobs disappear, who is going to pay for the government? The promised pensions and SS will not be there… Hey, thanks for your comment….:)

      • I love talking with you. Government pay isn’t out of line with private industry anymore. In a lot of cases they get paid less. But that’s here is the DC area. If you are in a lower cost area they might get paid more if they were the same grade levels. So in DC you might be a GS-11 making whatever but if you went to Pax River, a navy installation in southern MD even though they really are still in the area that same job would only get a GS-9 rating.
