The Buffet Rule

We must support this...pass it on and let’s see if these idiots understand what people pressure is all about.

Salary of retired US Presidents . . . . . . . . . .. . $193,000 + FOR LIFE

Salary of House/Senate members . . . . . . . . $174,000 FOR LIFE

Salary of Speaker of the House . . . . . . . . . . $223,500 FOR LIFE

Salary of Majority/Minority Leaders . . . . . . . . $193,400 FOR LIFE

Average Salary of a teacher . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. $40,065

Average Salary of a deployed Soldier . . . . . .. . $38,000

I think we found where the cuts should be made! If you agree pass it on.

Warren Buffet, 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 one (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 2014

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.

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 effective12/1/14. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women.

Congress 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?


If you agree, pass it on. If not, delete.

However the buffet rule was part of the Obama Tax plan not this or am I missing something?

Term Limits would help.

We've got former Senators and Representatives drawing handsome sums at the expense of the American taxpayers for life and they (some of them)served a short term in office.

Private enterprise cannot afford such lucrative pensions.

Government at all levels needs to look for ways to help small business, rather than consecrating on enforcing and collecting, fees and permits.
