 Start the 28th Amendment!!
>>
>> 
>>
>>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, before e-mail, before 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.
>>  
>> I'm 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. 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 American people. 
>> 
>> 
>> 4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
>> 
>> 
>> 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 by all laws they impose on the American
people.
>> 
>> 
>> 8. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void
effective 10-1-11 
>> 
>> 
>> 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.
>> 
>> THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!!!!! If you agree with the above, pass it on.   If
>>not, just delete
>>  
>> You are one of my 20+.  Please keep it going.
