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!

Congressional Reform Act of 2013 1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they're out of office. 2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose. 3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do. 4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise.Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%. 5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people. 6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people. 7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void effective 12/31/13. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women. Congressmen/women made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.
