An Idea from Warren Buffet

I don’t often pass these along, but thought this well worth a read and, perhaps, action. It may not make a difference, but at least I can do one thing.

“Winds of Change…. Warren Buffet is 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 this message. This is one idea that really should be passed around. *Congressional Reform Act of 2013 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 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. 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? THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS! If you agree with the above, pass it on. If not, just delete.”

  1. If Congress had to follow the same laws as the people let’s just say we wouldn’t have these laws. Congress themselves know that these laws are outrageous or else they would be following them, but nope they get special treatment because of their positions.

  2. This is the best idea I’ve seen yet. Congress has no idea of the situations they put Americans into, and if they had to live by the same laws we do maybe they would start thinking of solutions.

  3. Now I particularly like the idea of making Congress abide by the laws that they are forcing upon the American people. I think there would be a lot less politics involved and much more thoughtful decision making

  4. Great Idea, forwarded to more than twenty.
