Congressional Reform Act of 2013

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 effective 01/1/13.

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.

Don't you think it's time?
