WE the People DEMAND #CongressionalReformAct2017

Congress no longer represents the Sovereign States of the Union, but their own financial benefit and the stick that represents the Deep State or the Shadow Government.
Should the 17th Amendment be repealed, to give back control to the States?
Amendment XVII
The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, elected by the people thereof, for six years; and each Senator shall have one vote. The electors in each State shall have the qualifications requisite for electors of the most numerous branch of the State legislatures.
When vacancies happen in the representation of any State in the Senate, the executive authority of such State shall issue writs of election to fill such vacancies: Provided, That the legislature of any State may empower the executive thereof to make temporary appointments until the people fill the vacancies by election as the legislature may direct.
This amendment shall not be so construed as to affect the election or term of any Senator chosen before it becomes valid as part of the Constitution.
President Trump is asking everyone to forward this to a minimum of 20 people, and to ask that each of those do likewise.

In three days, most people in the United States will have the message. This is clearly an amazing idea that must be passed around. Stand by for the push back from THE SWAMP

THE TRUMP RULE:
Let's see if congress understands what people pressure is all about.

Currently

  • 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. 
  • Average Salary of a teacher . . .. . . . .. . . . . .. .$40,065 
  • Average Salary of a deployed Soldier . . .. . . .. $38,000 
  • Here's where the cuts should be made! 

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, and 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.

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 to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise.
