The biggest question I have is how doe we push this issue.
Simply putting it on ATS won't make it law.

Forgive me if I may seem naive, but I'm not aware of any law passed by an Act of Congress that Congresspersons are exempt from. Feel free to correct me if I am wrong, but the Law is for All. Our lawmakers are already held to the same Code of Law that they enact for the rest of us. Although there may be distinctions and benefits to Social Standing, they are still legally accountable to the same Laws. "

I believe that might just change the way senators and congressman vote, sadly enough lol
You have my vote, I technically can't vote but it's in the heart until I really can.

I firmly believe there is a conspiracy of privilege in the hallowed halls of our federal government. Our elected officials set themselves apart from and above the electorate in numerous ways. They look out for their own while they stick it to the rest of us.
It is time for this to stop. Long past time.
It is time for Amendment 28
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.
No Act of Congress may be made that is knowingly in violation of the United States Constitution and it's Amendments
