Constitutional Amendment Proposed

Tea Party Proposes New Amendment
It's time the people stood up for themselves. That's why the Tea Party is proposing a new amendment to the Constitution. They argue that it only took 3 months to ammend the Constitution to change the voting age from 21 to 18. Tea Party members argue that this new law should also be on the fast track. If enough people demand it, it can happen.

Here is the new proposed amendment to fix Congress:

Congressional Reform Act of 2011

  • Congress Gets No Pension or Tenure - A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.

  • Congress Must Participate 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.

  • Retirement Plan - Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all other Americans do.

  • Pay Raises - Congress may no longer vote themselves pay raises. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%

  • Health Care - Abolish ObamaCare. Then Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

  • Not Above The Law - Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.

  • Previous Contracts - All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/12. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen 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.

  • Term Limits - Congress shall not serve more than two consecutive terms in office.

What Do You Think?
Tell your Congressman what you feel about this issue. Demand they make it law!
