Congressional Reform Act of 2011

This is something that is worth fighting for and I hope you all read it all the way through.  You will be glad you did.

The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified!  Why?  Simple!  The people  demanded it. 

That was in 1971…before computers, before e-mail, before cell phones, etc.

Of  the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the  land…all because of public pressure.

If you pass this on, in three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message.  This is one idea that really should be passed around.

Congressional Reform Act of  2011

1.   No Tenure / No  Pension.
A  Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.

2.   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.  It may not be used for any other purpose.

3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.

4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise.  Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.

7.  All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/12. 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, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.

8. TERM LIMITS – MAX 12 YEARS OF “PUBLIC SERVICE”.

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!!!!!
If  you agree with the above, pass it on.   If not, just continuine putting up with the crap that congress is showing down our throats.

It’s time for a real change!
