Just got this from my big Sis. See- people can grow and change! (When I sent her a similar thing a few years ago, she laughed me off. Guess listening to her union isn’t working out so well now that she is retired.) Pass this on! If you would like me to copy you on the e-mail I received containing this- let me know in the comments.
I am going to see if I can find 20 people who agree or disagree with this issue.
Read down below and forward to 20 or more folks, or as many as you can —- folks who think the congressional offices holders are out of touch with the citizens … or maybe just holding the office to feather their nest.
This isn’t Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, Tea Party, Green Party or Independent; it’s the Right thing for all parties.
You’re part of my 20 people, hoping you will send this on to your 20 so we get this out
If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only take three days for most people (in the U.S. ) to receive the message. Maybe it is time.
THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!!!!!
Congressional Reform Act of 2010
1. Term Limits.
12 years only, one of the possible options below..
A. Two Six-year Senate terms
B. Six Two-year House terms
C. One Six-year Senate term and three Two-Year House terms
2. No Tenure / No Pension.
A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.
3. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.
All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people.
4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
6. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.
7. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.
8. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/11.
The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves.
Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.
If you agree with the above, pass it on. If not, just delete
