This should go to everyone regardless of political
social values, religious standing, economic views, etc.


Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one
of the best quotes about the debt ceiling:

"I could end the deficit in 5 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 3 months &8 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 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 2011

1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman collects a salary
while in office and receives no pay when they are out of

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.
