Interesting message I received in my email today…. a proposed 28th Amendment to the Constitution… containing some interesting Congressional tid bits!!
Widely circulated email chain letter - June 2010 - Modified for posting format:
Some people got a raise, did you? …
GRRRRRRRRRR….! I’m MAD AND YOU SHOULD BE TOO!
Your U.S. House & Senate have voted themselves $4,700 and $5,300 in raises.
1. They voted to not give you a S.S. cost of living raise in
2010 and 2011.
2. Your Medicare premiums will go up $285.60 for the 2-years and you will not get the 3% COLA: $660/yr. Your total 2-yr loss and cost is -$1,600 or -$3,200 for husband and wife
3. Over 2-yrs The House & Senate each get $10,000 raises
4. Do you feel SCREWED?
5. WILL your cost of drugs – doctor fees – local taxes – food, etc., increase? You better believe they will!
WILL THEIRS?…NO WAY!
They have a raise and better benefits. Why care about you? You never did anything about it in the past.
You’re obviously too stupid or don’t care. No offense; just making a point!
6. Do you really think that Nancy, Harry, Chris, Charlie, Barnie, et. al. care about you?
P.S. They exempted themselves from being held to the new Obama Health Care Coverage — Aren’t you the least bit suspicious about that ?
SEND THE MESSAGE – You’re FIRED !!!
In November 2010 YOU WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO GET RID OF THE SITTING CONGRESS AND Up to 1/3 OF THE SENATE AND 100% OF THE HOUSE.
MAKE SURE YOU’RE STILL MAD IN NOVEMBER 2010 AND TELL THEIR REPLACEMENTS NOT TO SCREW UP.
It is ok to forward this to your sphere of influence if you are finally tired of the abuse. Maybe it’s now time for the for a new Constitutional amendment…
“Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United
States that does not apply equally to the Senators or Representatives,
and Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators or
Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the
United States .”
Chain letters like the one above are becoming more and more frequent as the TEA party movement becomes more concerned of the American voter’s chronic memory and attention deficit disorder.
