Governors of 35 states filed suit against Fed Government

(Via Email, 6/19, 2010, hat tip: Stella Guenther) The email asks to "[h]ave each person contact a minimum of twenty people on their Address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise" to reach the 38-state minimum to convene a constitutional convention.

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."

Note that Oregon already has a similar provision in its Constitution.
Oregon Constitution, Article 1, Section 20: "No law shall be passed granting to any citizen or class of citizens privileges, or immunities, which, upon the same terms, shall not equally belong to all citizens."

Subject: Governors of 35 states filed suit against Fed Government

Governors of 35 states have already 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.

Really important! Hope you all do it!

This will take less than thirty seconds to read. If you agree, please
pass it on.

An idea whose time has come

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 didn't pay into
Social Security, 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 that is being considered...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. This is a good
way to do that. It is an idea whose time has come.

Have each person contact a minimum of twenty people on their Address
list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise.

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."
