Warren Buffett, "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 everybody to share this and ask their friends to do likewise.
 *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    1/1/2017.  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.
 If you agree with the above, pass it on........
