Make Congress Work - Congressional Reform Act of 2014

Pass a law that says that anytime there?s a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election.

After the recent govt shutdown, one feels it's time to listen to Warren Buffet when her proposed the following reform US Congress.



We the people agree that the following needs to occur to protect our country:



Congressional Reform Act of 2014



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 1/1/12. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women.



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.



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?
