Monday on Fox news they learned that the staffers of Congress family members are "exempt" from having to pay back student loans. This will get national attention if other news networks will broadcast it. When you add this to the below, just where will all of it stop?

35 States file lawsuit against the Federal Government

Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon them. It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.

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.
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.

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. 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 ."

You are one of my 20.

Another Monday, another lie by Fox.

And the rest of this is recycled crap which has long been proven false.

A rather timely reminder of the many "attack Congress" propaganda pieces currently circulating. The right continually makes false claims about Congress, points the finger at Congress and other government works as the "elitist" enemy who are just raking in money and benefits that ordinary people don't get. All in order to deflect anger from the wealthy and loss of jobs by wealthy corporations. Then when one of our congresspersons is attacked they can all act so very sad and perplexed that such a thing could happen.

Good thing congressional reps and senators don't have to abide by the same rules as the rest of us, or Tom Delay would be going to jail!

Oh, wait...

(Sorry, but the timing of this one was priceless.)
