HOW TO FIX THE DEFICIT
« on: May 05, 2017, 07:45:12 PM »
The SOMEONE  Rule:  :P

Let's see if congress understands what people pressure
is all about.

Salary of retired US Presidents .. . . .
.. . . . . .. . $180,000 FOR
LIFE.

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

Salary of Speaker of the House .. . . . ..
. . . . $223,500 FOR LIFE. This is really
stupid

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

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

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

Here’s where the cuts should be
made!

TRUMP, in a recent interview with CNBC,
offers one of the best quotes about the debt
ceiling:

"I could end the
deficit in five 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 three months and eight 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. Trump 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
2017

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 3/1/17. 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 go 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.
It's
time!

THIS IS HOW YOU FIX
CONGRESS!

Pass it on. Let's drain the
swamp!

I have a better idea, but Y'all are just hung up on the psychopath-promoting system of accounting for Human energy added into the system that accounts for Human energy added, and moves the bulk of OUR planet's wealth to very Few (psychopaths), creating wage slavery.

"If You have to account for Your energy to anOther to survive, You are NOT free; You are a slave."
"If the universe is made of mostly Dark Energy...can We use it to run Our cars?"

"If You want peace, take the profit out of war."

We the People need to pay attention  8) We the People need to pass this on, and get on the politicos in Washington and stay on them, with a never ending barrage of letters, emails, tweets, smoke signals, whatever it takes to get their attention...

We the People have to be a pain in their ass  8)

Because that is the most direct route to their brains...

Edited to say that after rereading it I may have misunderstood the meaning of "offers one of the best quotes". :)

THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!

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

No, You think you have a better idea; you have been beating that horse for years...

 ::)

Because Y'all are tied to the idea that We must account for Our energy added - despite the clear evidence that, in the systems We have now in place, there is a HUGE pool of excess Human energy - living in poverty, desperate, homeless often, or turning to the psychopath-promoting system for help just to get by.

I never expected the ideas I have to be a "snap of the fingers," and years is no surprise.  But death will not release Me in My efforts to create better on this planet.

You might want to watch this to get a good picture of what the systems We are under create here:



Seriously, if You think this is how this planet could best operate....  You are a psychopath.

How to fix the deficit.

Get a few genius hackers to drain the Rockefellers, Duponts et al bank accounts and transfer it to the people.

That would work temporarily...  Sooner or later, the psychopaths will suck it all up again.

Well if that is true  then what would stop the same psychopaths from sucking it all up again if your solution came about?  :P
