Top 10 ways to fix our Government


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. (or when not in session)

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%.  The median income of the United States is around 44,000 a year, our Senators and Congressman make over 175,000 a year.  Jefferson warned us about creating a professional political class!

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, and cannot exempt themselves from any law they pass that affects any citizen of the US.

8. 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.

9.  The Second Amendment is your right to protect yourself and congress shall make no law limiting the right to own, carry, conceal or license firearms.  That is a function that belongs to and should be left to the states.


10.  Voting/Election Reform….Women and Men who have reached the age of majority, 21,  AND Own Property should have a full vote,  Anyone not owning property and have no vested interest in their government should have a vote count 1/2 that of Property owners.  Owning property and having a vested interest in government was a founding principle of our Republic.  Candidates must be limited in the amount of money spent on elections.  It is foolish to think someone can spend a billion dollars to get elected to a job that pays roughly 250,000 dollars a year.

THIS IS HOW YOU FIX Government!!!!!
