"Winds of Change"...

Congressional Reform Act of 2013.

No Tenure / No Pension.
1. 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 12/31/13. 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.
Don't you think it's time?

Those might be good ideas,but they arent real.

Congress crammed Obamacare down our throats, and them exempted themselves from it.

Check it out...

Thier staffers couldnt afford Obamacare on a $60,000 a year budget, so Congress just exempted themselves from Obamacare. That way the staffers could continue to enjoy the Congress health care package.

They do, but not us.

But poor Americans making 16,000 a tear (or less) are supposed to afford Obamacare?

Why cant us regular people get an exemption too?
