How to fix Congress


*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.*

*I’m asking each addressee to forward this email to a

minimum of twenty people on their address list;  in

turn ask each of those to do likewise.

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 effective1/1/12. ****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.
*
*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.
