Making Things Right

This came to me on the internet and makes a lot of sense….

Proposed Congressional Reform Act

1. Term Limits:

12 years only, one of the possible options below:

A. Two Six-year Senate terms 

B. Six Two-year House terms

C. One Six-year Senate term and three Two-Year House terms

2. No Tenure / No Pension

A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when
they are out of office. 

3. 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 rest of the American people

4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.

5. Congress will no longer vote themselves pay raises. Congressional pay will
rise by the lower of CPI or 3%, which ever is lower.

6. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same
health care system as the rest of the American people.

7. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.

8. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/2012. 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 go back to work.
