GOT THIS IN AN EMAIL FROM MY VERY PROGRESSIVE SISTER-IN-LAW. PLEASE COPY IT AND EMAIL IT TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW...ESPECIALLY YOUR RIGHTWING FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS! :wink:



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 PERSON READING THIS to COPY AND FORWARD IT to a minimum of twenty people In
YOUR 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 then it will only take three
days for most people (in the U.S. ) to receive the message. Maybe
it is time.

THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!!!!!
