Glenn points us to an amendment proposal designed to force Congress to operate under the same laws that apply to citizens. It’s an interesting idea, albeit one that might contradict the portion of Article I, Section VI exempting Congress from arrest during session.
But since we’re on the subject of Amendments that impart fairness (or rather, equality), here’s my proposal:
1. Congress shall levy no tax on individual citizens except that it be applied equally to all and without threshold, exemption, deduction, credit, exception, or limitation of any kind.
2. The Federal government shall be required to operate without an annual fiscal deficit except in years containing a period of declared war, not to exceed four consecutive years or to exceed a total of four years in any consecutive ten year period.
