Tell Congress: Support a Twenty-Eighth Amendment!

Take action! Sign the petition and send a no-cost message to your U.S. Representatives and Senators urging them amend the Constitution and force the government to abide by its own rules!

“A government of the people, by the people, for the people should live under the same rules it passes for the people.” – Rep. Matt Salmon

It’s time our overgrown government be subjected to the same “rules” they set for us. 

As our lawmakers find it necessary to pass multitudes of new laws annually, it’s only proper that we require them to abide by them too. 

Already we’ve seen lawmakers exempt themselves from Obamacare – a law, they claimed, was “so good” its passage “couldn’t wait” – and we’ve seen others in government surround themselves with armed security, while they vote against our Second Amendment right to defense at every turn. 

It’s time to end the double standards and the special privileges.

The good news is: several lawmakers in both houses of Congress are getting behind the idea of a constitutional amendment that would do just this.

Take action! Sign the petition and send a no-cost message to your U.S. Representatives and Senators urging them amend the Constitution and force the government to abide by its own rules!

"ItÂ’s time to end the double standards and the special privileges." In ancient Sparta, the laws applied to ALL citizens to include the King. In our case, though, the "King" and HIS minions are exempt from all laws...including the Constitution.

Our Senators, HouseRepresentative and President are not privilege people, but public servants serving the people of the USA. What is good for the people is good for the Congress and President. This includes healthcare, Social Security, Medicare and Pensions.

This should not even be necessary but unfortunately our so called representatives believe themselves to be above the laws that they pass! The hypocrisy is astounding. And very like a dictatorship.... Pass the law, include no raising their own salaries, and then vote them all out.

Our representatives in the House and Senate serve at the pleasure of their constituents. In other words the work for the folks that elected them to office. This fact does not elevate them to a higher position in life as apparently many like to believe. Enough is enough.

I strongly support a 28th amendment requiring the congress to abide by the laws they make for the people. This should include the president and his cabinet and the Supreme Court as well. While they are making this amendment they should set term limits as well. Our problem is that Washington is full of career politicians who really believe they are above the law.

It's time for the our Public Servants to start acting as such and not as our Public Masters. The Elitist Attitudes of Privilege and Superiority over the masses that pay their salaries has to come to an end.

With all due respect to those who hold elected office it should be common sense that you should live under the same laws that you pass. In other words, you should also obey the same laws that we are forced to obey. You only hold office because of we the people. We put you there by our votes.

Your actions in Congress are ridiculous. Remember when voting time comes, we (THE PUBLIC who put you there) WILL remember your actions.
