    Can you name some current laws that don't apply to Congress? Where is the problem?

    The amendment seems rather liberal to me. Does it mean everybody can quit their job and get the annual $174,000 pay plus benefits that congress voted for itself?

    I refuse to sink to their level. I can see that by holding a leadership position, they should be held to a higher standard actually. So, I guess I disagree to an extent.

    So you'd rather they be above the law, and have no accountability.

    I still see nobody providing examples of laws that do not apply to Congress.

    Our Constitution is our most important legal document. It does not need to be cluttered with meaningless, petty grievances
