Subject: The self serving must stop!
No one has been able to explain to me why young

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."
