Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers
one of the best quotes about the debt ceiling:

"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 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 the message. This is one idea that really should
be passed around.

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

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

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.
