Today's Top Five List


Introduction:

The word atrocities aptly fit what you are about to read for the new year of 2011.

Student Loans

Fox News learned the end of last year that the staffers of Congress family members have been exempt from having to pay back student loans. Only if other news networks broadcast this will you learn of this side door effort for a select few.

State Law Suits

Governors of 35 states have filed suit against the Federal Government for imposing unlawful burdens on them. It is only 38 of the 50 states to convene a Constitutional Convention. This might be a good time to contact your congress man or woman to encourage or lead your congressional representative to hear your voice to get this enacted. Read more to see if you are outraged enough yet.

Pay

It is not widely known that members of congress retire with the same pay only after one term in office. This permits them to take another job or live sometimes better than a lot of Americans do and from the tax payers money.

Exempt

Members of the congress have exempted themselves from fear of prosecution for sexual harassment. They have put themselves above the law, which all other citizens must abide by.

Protected

When the new health care reform is mandatory for every citizen, Congress has determined they will not be included in that mandate, but will have their own health care package. The general population does not get to see what the citizens of the United States will be paying for in that package.

    Hey thanks for pointing this out!

    If there is a Constitutional Convention, we the people can propose 29th Amendment to the United States Constitution that reads:" Congress shall make no law that applied to 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."

    This country of ours is going downhill fast. Sad the leaders find themselves "priviledged' while those of us who actually work for a living get treated this way.

    Atrocities really says it all. I can't add much except to say you wrote a serious list that deserves serious consideration by collective consciousness. Thank you sisterfriend.

    Atrocities is right! Sounds like Congress has it's own little country above the law and without consequences.

    Hmmm. We could move to Canada. This list is disturbing and just hits the tip of what is wrong in this country. I wish that voting made a difference but when you are just voting in new crooks to replace the old, what good is it doing?

    Scary what our great country is being reduced to. Thank goodness I always vote and encourage others to do the some. Other than an outright revolt, not much else can be done to stop this craziness.
