A modest Constitutional proposal.

Noted over on Instapundit, one of their readers sent in this proposed amendment to the 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’m in. Of course, most people appear to assume that it’s already the case. It’s not and that’s not right.

Note, too, that this amendment has all the hallmarks of the original 10 – succinct, plain language (for our day), and in keeping that the Constitution is intended to be a check on government action, not a supposed “grant” of rights to citizens. It would be nice for Congress to note, too, that it didn’t take 2000 pages to describe.
