Congressional Reform Act of 2014 as started by Warren Buffet

Discourage life-long "servants" in Congress

While I did not come up with this list myself, I ask the American People to become more active in how the United States government functions:

Congressional Reform Act of 2014

1. No Tenure / No Pension:

a. 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


a. 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. To better benefit the American People, new ideas and methods are necessary. As such, beginning January 1, 2014:

a. Members of the Senate shall only serve a total of two terms; no more than 144 months.

i. The terms may or may not run consecutively

b. Members of the House of Representatives shall only serve a total of 4 terms; no more than 96 months

i. Terms may or may not run consecutively

5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise.

a. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

i. Any increase must be passed by the constituency of individual Congressman

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/women are void

effective 1/1/13. The American people did not make this

contract with Congressmen/women.

a. Congressmen/women 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.
