#InTheMail Today…Congressional Reform Act Of 2013

This was a forward from one of my golfing buddies. Seems like a good idea to me.

Congressional Reform Act of 2013….
         It really does make sense.
Salary of retired US Presidents . . . . . . . . . . .$180,000 FOR LIFE
Salary of House/Senate members . . . . . . . . $174,000 FOR LIFE This is stupid
Salary of Speaker of the House . . . . . . . . . . $223,500 FOR LIFE This is really stupid
Salary of Majority/Minority Leaders . . . . . . . . $193,400 FOR LIFE Ditto last line
Average Salary of a teacher . . . . . . . . . . . . . .$40,065
Average Salary of a deployed Soldier . . . . . . . $38,000

I think we found where the cuts should be made! If you agree
pass it on, I just did.

Warren Buffet, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one
of the best quotes about the debt ceiling:

“I could end the deficit in 5 minutes,” he told CNBC. “You
just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of
GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election.

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, e-mail, cell
phones, etc.

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

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 passed around.

Congressional Reform Act of 2013

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

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/women are
void effective 12/1/13. The American people did not make this contract with

Congress 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

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. Don’t you think it’s time?
