Should Congress Be Held to the Same Standards?
Original post made by Daveg, Birdland, on Oct 24, 2013
He has introduced a "constitutional amendment stating: ï¿½Congress shall make no law applicable to a citizen of the United States that is not equally applicable to Congress.ï¿½ This amendment also contains two provisions that apply that same principle to the executive branch and judicial branch of the federal government.
Under this amendment, Congress, federal judges and even the White House will no longer be able to exempt themselves from the laws they create, uphold or sign ï¿½ as they all regularly do now in a plethora of ways. If congressional staffers are still allowed to receive subsidies for Obamacare, Americans will also be able to receive similar support from their employers should both parties desire such an arrangement".
Read the entire article and ask yourself if this makes sense.
It will be interesting to see how much support this amendment generates among our duly elected representatives.
