From an Email received by me.. I have been wanting to do a story on this for a long time. It should also be mentioned that scum hypocrite members of Congress will receive a full retirement only after serving one day in office as does the President.. Talk about the real disparity in income in the United States.. our federally elected government officials v. the serfs they preside over and take money from for their extraordinary lifestyles. I saw how bad it is when I was in D.C. in October of this year. They are living high on the hog via tax payer dollars.
A miltary member has to work for over 20 years to receive half of his pay.
No one has been able to explain to me why young men and women who serve in the U.S. military for years, risking their lives protecting individuals rights and freedom and after suffering horrendous injury, only receive 50% of their pay.
Meanwhile, Politicians hold political positions in their luxurious and safe office suites of the capital, protected by these same men and women, and receive 100% full pay for their retirement after serving only one term. It just does not make any sense.
Monday we learned that the staffers of Congress family members are exempt from having to pay back student loans.
This will get national attention if news networks will broadcast it. When you add this to the below, just where will all of it stop?
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 or right.
We, the American citizens, did not agree to have an elite class 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 received 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.”
