Proverbs 13:13
13 Ignore the Word and suffer; honor God’s commands and grow rich. > > > Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the best
> quotes about the debt ceiling:
> > “I could end the deficit in 5 minutes,” he told CNBC. “You
> just
> pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more
> than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible
> for re-election.
> > 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, e-mail, 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.
> > 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

> > _*Congressional Reform Act of 2011*_
> > 1. No Tenure / No Pension.
> > A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives
> no
> pay when they are 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 are void
> effective 1/1/12. 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

> > If you agree with the above, pass it on. If not, just delete.
