28th Amendment - Is it Time?

By
Real Estate Agent with Mason Real Estate CA BRE 01444168



Here's a good start.....
                                                                                                        
              Brilliant concept!
              Start the 28th Amendment                                                     
                                                                                                                                               
The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified!   Why?  Simple!  The people demanded it.  That was in 1971...before computers, before e-mail, before cell phones, etc.                               
                                                                                                                 
Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land...all because of public pressure.                                                                                         
                                                                                                                 
I'm asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise.                                                                                                                                                                         
In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message.  This is one idea that really should be passed around.                                                      
                                                                                                                                               
Congressional Reform Act of 2011                                                                                               

                                                                                                                 
                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 move to the Social Security system immediately.  All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people.                                                     
                                                                                                                                               
                                                                                                                                               
                4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do. 
                                                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                               
                5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise.  Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.                
                                                                                                                                               
                                                                                                                                               
                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 are void effective 10-1-11 
                                                                                                                                               
                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, 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.  Maybe it is time.. 

                                                                                                                                               
                THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!!!!! If you agree with the above, pass it on.   If not, just delete

I agree, John.  Our government is very broken and a long way from what our founding fathers envisioned!
