There’s something new floating around the Internet that caught my eye. Of course, there’s always something new floating around the Internet that catches my eye. In this case, it was the 28th Amendment. My first reaction was: Huh? There is no 28th Amendment. That’s not to say there haven’t been several proposed 28th Amendments since the 27th was ratified on May 7, 1992. But none of them struck a chord with the American people like the latest one. I don’t know who wrote it, but we should hire him (or her) to write all of our amendments. This one really has class, and if it was ratified, you can bet that every Congressman and Senator would read every bill they voted on because they would directly impact them. And, its a safe bet that they would write fewer bills and enact even less of them.

The proposed 28th Amendment reads as follows:

“Congress shall make no laws that apply to all Citizens of the United States that do not apply equally to the Senators and Representatives; and Congress shall make no laws that apply to the Senators and Representatives that do not apply equally to all Citizens of the United States.”
