I
have totally cleaned this e-mail from all 
other names, sending it to you in hopes you will
keep it going and keep it clean.  This is
something I will fight 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.


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 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.


If
each person contacts a minimum of twenty
people
, it
will only take thre
e
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 delete. 
 You are
one of my 20+.  Please keep it
going.
