Please Send to your Senator and Congressmen

THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!!!!!


I am sending this to virtually everybody on my e-mail list and that includesconservatives, liberals, and everybody in between. Even though we maydisagree on a number of issues, I consider all of you to be true Americansand friends. My friend and neighbor wants to promote a"Congressional Reform Act of 2010 ". It would contain eightprovisions, all of which would probably be strongly endorsed by thosewho drafted the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

I know many of you will say, "this is impossible". Let meremind you, Congress has the lowest approval of any entity in Government and…now is the time all Americans should join together to reform Congress - theentity that represents us.

It’ll be almost impossible and very hard to do, but we need to get a selflessSenator and Representative to introduce this bill in the US Senate and asimilar bill in the House of Representatives. These people will becomeAmerica’s hero's.. Thanks,

A Fellow American



Congressional Reform Act of 2010

  • The Senators and Congressman of the United States should have no more and no less than the people they serve. By putting term limits and making them have what the people have is just plain fair. Period. Time has told us that Man or Woman, in the long term, submit to the money, power and greed. The people who serve US in these positions of power, have no more right to a lifetime of health insurance, paying No Social Security, or Making the People pay for their retirement without them, themselves contributing. Take away these things that corrupt the system.
