Fix Congress

The very first time I've seen where the triplets go to co-op home schoolers school was on the14th of this month.  It was fun to be there to pick them up when they finished classes.  I was impressed with the friends they had there of all ages.  They all seem to get along very well and love each other...nothing like what I hear about in public schools these days.

It was a special day for the triplets because they got grade cards for the very first time and they are now in fourth grade.  Everyone did well.  But one of the kids was way more into the grades than the other two.  It was obvious that he is motivated to please others and to get good grades.  

I am motivated right now to get this "Congressional Reforrn Act" actually in the works and passed.  Read it and see what you think.

*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 the message. Maybe it is time.
