An amendment to establish equality of representation

This petition had 9 supporters

This amendment creates equality of representation in both the process of electing members of congress and in the process of representing the people; it does so by removing the unequal influence of money from both processes as well as removing conflicts of interest. Once this becomes part of the Constitution, a congressperson will have one and only one job during his or her term - representing the people for the people - He or she will be paid ONLY by the country. He or she must give up any payment for services not in the conduct of his office. No speaking fees, no book royalties, no gifts, no outside jobs, no constant pressure to get money for re-election, no constant pressure from lobbyists to do this or that, and no need to respond to anyone outside his or her district. This will free the incumbents to actually work on governing the country. Any personal wealth and income sources will need to be put in trust outside control of the congressperson.
