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, or being allowed to engage in insider trading) while ordinary  citizens must live under those laws.  Remember the recent government shutdown?  Government employees weren’t paid among many others.  But congressmen not only got paid on time, they enjoyed myriad benefits like being able to continue exercising in their own gym.  It’s not as if their gym was a necessary government expenditure at the same time everyone else was having their lives turned upside down and being forced underwater from no paychecks to pay their mortgages or anything else.  It was a disgraceful display of FRAUD on the American people and those pigs are still in office, feeding at the public trough!

The latest is to exempt themselves from  the Healthcare Reform that passed … 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.


A 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 .”

Those in favor of such a law — please leave your comments.  Are you  fed up yet or what?  The only way Congress is going to act ethically is to have a law that forces them to.  Unfortunately, they’re the ones making the laws.  That, in itself, is a massive conflict of interest.  That’s why the proposed 28th amendment will never pass and that’s sad and wrong.



  1. It isn’t a surprise to Congress!

    Americans have been pleading with lawmakers for this for more than 10 years! All to deaf, dumb, and blind Congress!

    hell-o, why do we let them get away with this. that is how stupid we have become. dum sheep letting the wolfs screw us. where are the sheep dogs to go sic-em. oh, that’s right, we have none. no one to save us from ourselves.

    • Sad but true. Corruption and greed rule and we slither away and hide under rocks. This country has been ripe for revolution for so long. If not now, when … when the entire planet has been destroyed, when all our food, water and soil has been poisoned and all the species poached and annihilated?
