Once again I am posting something that I recieved in an email. Is that blog cheating?
Anyway, I know it’s a hot topic, and I am not up for debating right now, but health care in this country is a big big problem. In fact it’s a problem for me personally, as my family and I can not afford health care.
We take vitamins, and Juice Plus, and we pray to God above that we stay healthy because Insurace is out of our reach. In today’s income structure, we are probably considered middle class, so we are not poor. In fact, being either poor or rich can work in your favor, but being solidly in the middle does not. When we talk about a nationalized health care plan, people go bezerk. I would hazard a guess that most of those people are employed somewhere that offers health care coverage, or they are on Medicare, which, folks, is a nationalized plan.
Now, do I trust the government to run health care? Not necessarily, but isn’t there something else we could do? I think maybe there is…I just haven’t had time to work it all out…
I am off topic, so let me get back to the great email my friend sent me. If you like what it says, go ahead and forward this link to your congressman/woman and your friends. If you don’t like what it says, then don’t be mean, just agree to disagree and we will go our separate ways…caio…
|GREAT IDEA ( verified on Snopes.com )! Lets all demand Washington intact this law.|
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 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 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.
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 12/1/12. 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?
THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!
If you agree, pass it on. If not, delete.
You are one of my 20+ – Please keep it going, and thanks”
social-cindy over and out…
