Barack Obama Listen To The People: The Congressional Reform Act of 2010

A reader left this comment on the previous post, "The Fed Corner".  It makes sense to me.  Serving in Congress SHOULD NOT BE A CAREER.  It was never meant to be.  People served because they wanted to "serve" their country just as our military does.  Our enlisted men and women serve, not for the money but for the honor of serving their nation.  If anyone should get the pay and perks that Congressmen and women do it should be our enlisted men and women who volunteer to be ORDERED into battle and put their lives on the line.

But our ruling class sees things different and with their financiers in big business continue to aid the destruction o four country.

Here is the commment I felt worthy of posting:  It was left by an anonymous reader.
I am sending this to virtually everybody on my e-mail list and that includes conservatives, liberals, and everybody in between. Even though we disagree on a number of issues, I count all of you as friends.. My friend and neighbor wants to promote a "Congressional Reform Act of 2010". It would contain eight provisions, all of which would probably be strongly endorsed by those who drafted the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

I know many of you will say, "this is impossible". Let me remind you,
Congress has the lowest approval of any entity in Government, now is
the time when Americans will join together to reform Congress — the
entity that represents us.
We need to get a Senator to introduce this bill in the US Senate and a
Representative to introduce a similar bill in the US House. These
people will become American heroes.

Congressional Reform Act of 2010

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career.
The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your
term(s), then go home and back to work.

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 moves to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, Congress participates with the American people.

4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan just as all Americans.

5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional
pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%
6. Congress looses their current health care system and participates
in the same health care system as the American people.

7. Congress must equally abide in all laws they impose on the American people.

8. All contracts with past and present congressmen are void effective 1/1/2011.
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, serve your
term(s), then go home and back to work.
