WINDS OF CHANGE PLEASE READ THIS

    Suject: Winds of Change
     
     
     
     
     
    Winds of Change....
    Warren Buffet is asking each addressee to forward this e-mail 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. No tenure and 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 and 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 1/1/12. 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. You are one of my 20+.  Please keep it going, and thanks.

    Larry Richardson Donna, we are talking the South Carolina House, not Congress, and IF I can get enough voters on board, it can pass, but only IF the voters wake up and take the reigns of power back.

    Anthony Afterwit Where to begin?
    First, the email loses some legitimacy when the guy who allegedly wants the email forwarded can't spell his own name correctly. It is Warren BuffetT - two "t's"- not one.
    Secondly, no such legislation or proposed legislation e...  more
