CONGRESSIONAL REFORM ACT OF 2011 ===> “FOOD FOR THOUGHT” ===> FEEDBACK APPRECIATED!

I received this little “tid-bit”from a family member over the weekend.  

.

Usually, they’re more on the “extreme-side” (right-wing), but for the most part, the following has been bandied about for years.  It’s just a more distilled version of some of the pet-peeves most people – at one time or another – have had about our “CONGRESS”.

.

Please feel free to weigh-in with any comments and/or suggestions or just simply “pass-it-on”.

.

Thanks.

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.
