Congressional Reform Act of 2012

THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!

Warren Buffet says to send this to 20 people
and  in turn ask each of those to do likewise.
_*Congressional Reform Act of 2012*_
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 3%.
5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people, that is to include having Medicare and Medicaid.
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 12/31/12. 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!

Assh^les Pearson, Cengage Learning, and Macmillan Higher Education

Tyrant textbook publishers have no right to sue Boundless Learning who publish using creative commons licensed and otherwise freely available material. Boundless Learning then pulls all matter of content from free and open sources to create free and open versions of the textbooks the student selected. It’s no secret that the textbook industry is just as despicable as, say, the entertainment industry, working hard to artificially dive up pricing and get governments to mandate their expensive books – effectively creating a monopoly you can’t circumvent.
