Please read:
About the 28th amendment
Please Read, and forward. This will only take 1 minute to read!
28th Amendment, 35 States and Counting.
It will take you less than a minute to read this. If you agree, please pass it on. It's an idea whose time has come to deal with this self-serving situation:
OUR PRESENT SITUATION !!!
Children of Congress members do not have to pay back their college student loans.
Staffers of Congress family members are also exempt from having to pay back student loans.
Members of Congress can retire at full pay after only one term.
Members of Congress have exempted themselves from many of the laws they have passed, under which ordinary citizens must live.
For example, they are exempt from any fear of prosecution for sexual harassment.
And as the latest example, they have exempted themselves from Healthcare Reform, in all of its aspects.
We must not tolerate an elite class of such people, elected as public servants and then putting themselves above the law.
I truly don't care if they are Democrat, Republican, Independent, or whatever. The self-serving must stop.
Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens upon their states.It only takes 38 (of the 50) States to convene a Constitutional Convention.
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.
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 ..."

I did not present any math. I merely pointed out the reality that Medicaid is really lousy health care

A. It is not lousy health care, you get the full range of medical services from real doctors and real specialists.

and poor people would be much better off if they were given a subsidy to buy real health care from the exchanges.

Except the Republicans will not give them a subsidy enabling them to buy health insurance, they will give poor people some money towards paying health premiums with the remainder to be paid by the recipient. Except, if you are broke enough to qualify for Medicaid, you can't afford that premium, even if it is reduced somewhat. End result: Medicaid recipient gets shifted to Trumpcare, gets a bill for somewhat reduced health care premiums which he/she still will not be able to afford, and gets thrown off healthcare entirely.

Republicans will say that's not how the way it will work, but that is exactly the way it will work. Republicans denigrate Medicaid as bad healthcare because for tens of millions of people they are about to take all healthcare away, and figure they can get away with it if the public thinks the victims didn't lose much anyway. As if losing the ability to get treated by a doctor is a trivial thing.

@Blickers,
Why the GOP wants to repeal Obamacare/ACA. Give bigger tax cuts to the rich. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2017/06/26/the-real-reason-republicans-to-pass-this-health-care-bill-so-much-has-little-to-do-with-health-care/?utm_term=.1370a63d4d9b
It has a lot to do with healthcare. Take away health insurance from 32 million Americans, increase cost, and take away insurance from pre-existing health problems/issues. https://www.cnbc.com/2017/07/19/cbo-obamacare-repeal-bill-would-raise-number-of-uninsured-by-27-million-by-2020.html Why are the republicans so out to screw all Americans? I don't understand it. Don't they have family and friends who benefit from Medicare?

Cosmetics from the 1800s and unnecessary side effects from obsolete medicine are hardly desirable.

I differ from the Republicans on this. Give the poor a large enough subsidy so that they can afford a top-level gold or platinum PPO off the Obamacare exchanges.

I suppose yes, really crappy healthcare is better than dying because you have no healthcare at all.

But I think it might be nice if the poor were given really good healthcare.

@TheCobbler,
Trump is ignorant on many fronts, and he insists on proving it frequently with his statements. He has proved himself to be a racial bigot, liar and misogynist. He has nothing more to prove.

*********************


******* TRUMP USED A DISABLED VETERANS PICTURE, WITHOUT PERMISSION.... 😡😡😡😡😡😡
Trump Uses Vet’s Image To Sell Anti-NFL Rhetoric; Brave Marine Tells Donald To Shove It
That asshole has gone on and on for days now about the supposed necessity of NFL players standing for the national anthem no matter what.
Some players have taken it upon themselves to sit out the anthem as a demonstration on behalf of African Americans.
On September 24, the president retweeted an image of a soldier who had lost both of his legs.
Left as a comment on one of his own tweets by one of the many Trump fan accounts that pepper Twitter, the post reads:
‘I wonder what this BRAVE American would give to stand on his OWN two legs just ONCE MORE for our #Anthem?’
That soldier has now spoken out, and he has harsh words for the president.
In short, he is sick of soldiers being used as little more than a political rallying cry.
When asked, the retired Marine Staff Sgt. John Jones, said about his image going viral, and his initial response was a “grim chuckle.”
As he commented: “The thing is, I do stand. Hello, I have technology.”
(He uses prosthetic limbs.)
He went on to get more serious, stating, that the controversy over NFL players standing for the anthem or not is “beside the point.”
Jones, who works for an organization that trains veterans as skilled laborers, explained:
‘Just stop with this sycophantic bullshit and actually do something to support us. I would want Trump to tweet about that, instead of fueling the fire with the people making 10 million to score a freaking touchdown. And for people (seeing the photo) to say, “Look, he’s still standing for this country, and getting veterans good jobs.”‘
As for his own views about the conflict that Trump has jumped in on, Jones says that it’s simply irrelevant.
Like the vast majority of respectable Americans, he has his own views and personal practices with regard to standing for the flag or not, but he’s not trying to force those views on other people.
As he summed up the situation:
‘I’ve got my own views about this, but that’s why I put the uniform on, so people can do whatever they want in a lawful, peaceful manner. I’m sorry, but if you want to know what the real issues are, go to Iraq, or Syria, or Afghanistan, go to places that don’t have the freedoms that we have and see how far you get.’
Jones isn’t even the only member of the U.S. Armed Forces who has been exploited by the president on Twitter in recent days.
He also recently tweeted an image of the deceased Pat Tillman, which earned him harsh criticism from Tillman’s widow, who said that military service “should never be politicized in a way that divides us.”
The practice of having players stand at attention for the national anthem is itself a relatively recent phenomenon, prompted by influxes of cash from the Department of Defense meant to boost recruiting through shows of patriotism at sporting events.
It’s the government that dragged soldiers’ interests into sporting events in the first place.
