"New Contracts, Rules, and Regulations"
Each of us is asked 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. This is more than a great idea! This should be on the minds of everyone voting for the"establishment." Term limits!
We must support this - pass it on and let's see if these idiots understand what people pressure is all about.
Salary of retired US Presidents .. . . . .. . . . . .. . $180,000 (For Life)
Salary of House/Senate members .. . . . .. . . . $174,000 (For Life) This is really stupid.
Salary of Speaker of the House .. . . . .. . . . . $223,500 (For Life) This is really stupid.
Salary of Majority / Minority Leaders . . .. . . . $193,400 (For Life) This is really stupid.
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!
Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the best quotes about the debt ceiling: "I could end the deficit in five 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 three months and eight 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 pressure.
"Congressional Reform Act Of 2017"
1.No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman / woman collects a salary while inoffice and receives no pay when they're out of office.
2.Congress ( past, present, & future ) participates in SocialSecurity. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to theSocial Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the SocialSecurity system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may notbe 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 6/1/17.
The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women.
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 go 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.
Don't you think it's time?
"This is how you fix Congress".
If you agree, pass it on. If not, you probably should! Both.....agree.....and.....pass it on.
I know this is an older email that was sent around, but now it is time for President Trump to read it. Perhaps we should 'all' send it to him. I think he might even like the suggestions.
