Below you will find an “idea” circulating around the internet through e-mail and alike.

Whether Warren Buffet had anything to do with it is really irrelevant.  The true issues are that power is a seductive force.  Once these folks make it to Washington they loose their soul.  Getting elected to congress is almost like winning the lottery!  They write laws that do not apply to them i.e. “insider trading.”  While you and I would go to jail (paging Martha Stewart) they not only can buy and sell stocks on what they know, they can create the environment with your money and invest before the company is granted some huge infusion of cash (bailout).  That is akin to betting on the results of a “fixed contest.”

Washington is dysfunctional and growing the monster larger is not the answer.

If this makes sense to you, just point your friends to this and see what they think. Re-Blog it!  A conversation regarding such things is always welcome and in fact, a healthy debate with educated people is actually exciting!  So read on and tell me what you think.

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 2%.
5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.
 This one seems like common sense doesn’t it?
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.
Two four year Terms
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?
 We can do better than 20 with Twitter, Facebook, and of course the power of the BLOG!
THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!  I would also add Washington.
If you agree with the above, pass it on.  Lets make it (dare I say it) Viral!
