    Warren Buffet is asking each addressee to forward this e-mail to at least 20 people on their e-mail list; in turn, ask each e-mail addressee to do likewise.  In three days, most of the people in the United States should have this message.  It is an important one that needs to be passed around:

    I think I Made a Post on this, Awhile back. Somebody made a comment, It should be called, The Buffet Plan.

    I just got this in, this morning. Just want to see what you-all think, Now.


    1.  No tenure.  No Pension.  A Congressman/woman collects 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

    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.

    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 12/31/13.  The American people did NOT make this contract with them.  THEY
         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.

      I've a little problem with #7, which goes back through many of the others as well.

      Congress has, and had, the ability to make contracts.  To void those contracts isn't right any more than a company making a contract with you and then suddenly declaring it null and void because the CEO didn't sign it; just an employee that had the authority to make and sign it.

      Ethically it isn't right to suddenly that congress never had the right to contract with themselves when they plainly did.

      Warren Buffet has sunk to e-mail chain letters?

      How pathetic.
