One Black Woman’s View on Baltimore – Warning Strong Language

 
 
 

How do you fix Congress? … its easy, take a look

OK, I’m trying to
send this to 20 people because I believe in this. Will you forward it? To 20
people? Or don’t you think this is worthy of consideration?

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.

I REPORT, YOU
DECIDE.

The BUFFETT Rule

We must support this – pass it on and let’s see
if Congress 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
stupid

Salary of Speaker of the House .. . . . .. . . . . $223,500 FOR LIFE
This is really stupid
Salary of Majority/Minority Leaders . . .. . . . .
$193,400 FOR LIFE Ditto last line

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! If you agree pass it
on, as I just did.

Warren Buffet, 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.

Warren Buffet is asking each addressee 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.

Congressional Reform Act of 2015

1. No Tenure / No Pension. A
Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when
they’re 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/women are void effective 12/1/15. 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,
delete.
