Exclamation This Is How You Fix Congress

NMA Article: This Is How You Fix Congress



This article, which has been making the rounds as an email forward recently, is not directly related to our usual topics but we thought that the regular readers of this blog would enjoy reading and discussing it.


Introduction


I am sending this to virtually everybody on my e-mail list and that includes conservatives, liberals, and everybody in between. Even though we disagree on a number of issues, I count all of you as friends. My friend and neighbor wants to promote a “Congressional Reform Act of 2009″. It would contain eight provisions, all of which would probably be strongly endorsed by those who drafted the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.


I know many of you will say, “this is impossible”. Let me remind you, Congress has the lowest approval of any entity in Government, now is the time when Americans will join together to reform Congress – the entity that represents us.


Thanks,

A Fellow American


Congressional Reform Act of 2009


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. Congress participates with the American people.


4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plans just as all Americans.


5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.


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


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


8. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/10.

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. Serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.
