Proposed Congressional Reform Act of 2012

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

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.

Congress 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?
