|Warren Buffet is 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
*Congressional Reform Act of 2012*
1. No Tenure / No Pension.
A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives NO PAY when they’re out of office.
2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.
All funds in the Congressional retirement fund to be moved into the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates the same as the rest of us Americans. It may not be used for any other purpose.
3. Congress can purchase their own retirement/401K 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 rest of 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/women are void effective 12/31/12. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women.
In the past, Congressmen/women have made all of these contracts in their favor 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 this message.
Don’t you think it’s time?
THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!
POLITICAL Wages with no strings attached…… QUITE COMFORTABLE, WOULDN’T YOU SAY?
Salary of retired US Presidents …………. $450,000 LIFETIME SALARIES FOR:
HOUSE AND SENATE: $174,000 FOR LIFE
SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE: $223,500 FOR LIFE
MAJORITY & MINORITY LEADERS: $193,400 FOR LIFE
AVERAGE SALARY OF A SOLDIER DEPLOYED IN AFGHANISTAN: $38,000…….
AVERAGE INCOME FOR SENIORS ON SOCIAL SECURITY: $12,000…..
From such low incomes, how can the soldier or the senior survive on a retirement income?
I think we found where the cuts should be made!
