CONGRESSIONAL FREEZE OF BENEFITS
Submitted by BA
This should be bipartisan!!!
Please forward this Email to a minimum of 20 people and to ask each one of them to do likewise. This makes too much sense not to be passed on. In 3 days, most people in the United States will have the message. This is why the idea should be passed around, regardless of one’s political arty affiliation.
Congressional Reform Proposal
1– No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman / Woman, collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they’re out of office. No more perks go with them.
2– Congressman / Woman (past, present & future) participate 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 purposes.
3– Congress must purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
4– Congress will no longer vote themselves pay increases. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%
5– Congress’s current Healthcare System is terminated, and they participate in the same Healthcare System as the American people.
6– Congress must abide by all the laws they impose on the American people
7– All contracts with past and present Congressman / Woman are void.
The American people did not make these contracts with Congressmen/women.
The Congress made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators serving their terms, then going home and back to work, and not get all kinds of freebies!
No wonder THEY’RE FIGHTING THIS TOOTH AND NAIL!
The plan is for each person to contact a minimum of 20 people.
If that happens. it will only take 3 days for most people in the United States to receive this message.
It’s time for us to take action now! Please send this on, knowledge is power.
