Re: Email submission sent to SOTN.
Every American citizen ought to read the following email thread. It’s not only entirely accurate, it’s also quite instructive; for it provides a [VITAL] action plan of sorts. Now let’s do it, before it’s too late!
Yeah, yeah, we know: IT MAY ALREADY BE TOO LATE.
Just remember: “It’s better late than never.” So at least you can tell your grandkids that you at least tried to save their country before it totally crashed and burned.*
*The ongoing Obamacare / Trumpcare / Heathcare debate is representative of
everything that is very wrong with American government. The 115th Congress
is both determined and destined to get it all wrong … so that every component
of the new healthcare bill only serves the Healthcare Industry; and none of it
serves We the People. If the American people really knew how this sausage is
being made, they would shut down the congressional butcher shop … … …
YESTERDAY ! ! !
The thread begins here:
I have no idea who wrote the following. Whether Trump or one of you wrote these proposals they are long past overdue. Congressmen, Senate and House, by and large could care less about you. It is a business for them. It is not just the democrats…it is equally republicans. If you want America to survive it is up to you and me to vote in a whole new group of REAL Americans. If there is one dedicated American left in congress, please tell me who they are. I watch the news and the hearings and I have not seen one who is not bought and sold. And, the FBI, the Justice Department and anyone affiliated with them are proven to be above the law. So, IF YOU ARE BLAMING TRUMP YOU ARE BARKING UP THE WRONG TREE. Make a change in 2018 if you want America to survive. Pay attention to what is going on. We are being had. We need to change the rules across the board. Read on.
Trump is asking everyone to forward this email to a minimum of 20 people, and to ask each of those to do likewise.
In three days, most people in the United States will have the message This is an idea that should be passed around, regardless of political party.
The TRUMP Rules will include: Congressional Reform Act of 2017
1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman / congresswoman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are 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
5/1/17. 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!
Serving in Congress should be an honor, not a career!
Pass it on. Let’s drain the swamp!
A friend just wrote the following article. Problem is it makes too much sense for the many small and corrupt minds of our leaders. Corruption is so rampant that none of our “leaders” can get a handle on it. Look at Susan Rice, the Clintons, Comey, Ryan, Pelosi, Schumer, Paul, Mansion, McConnell, Moran, Portman, Shelley Moore Capito, Susan Collins, Lee, Cassidy, Corker, Heller, Hoeven, Johnson, McCain, Murkowski, Sasse…………..etc, etc, etc.
What we are seeing is a car wreck in slow motion. You and I are in the car and these and others are standing by doing nothing because they could care less. Now, reach it C.W. !!!!!
I just sent the following to The President of The United States via WhiteHouse.gov. Yeah, I know he will not see it. He already knows what I said is true. Sadly nothing can be done to change the cause of the problem presented…so sad.
‘YOUR WORST ENEMY IS “CONGRESS”
I wish you could implement all of your agenda items…it would be a true win for the American People. And, with a majority of Republican in both houses it should be done by now.
Unfortunately, with the legalized corruption of allowing companies/organizations/unions to contribute (read “bribe”) to congressional PACs in return for which they write legislation for the benefit of the contributing companies/organizations/unions at the expense of the American People. If not, how did the $300 billion in insurance company bailouts get included in the Health Care bill that just died? Congress with the PAC contributions get reelected 95% of the time. Congressional Leadership probably gets reelected more than 95% of the time. So, the 2018 mid-terms means nothing to most congressmen and senators. They don’t care if they lose the majority in the Senate …most of them get reelected. The bad news is you, Mr. President, will not get reelected in 2020 because droves of disappointed voters, and contributors like me from the 2016 election, will not vote or will vote for the DEMs. So sad that such a great opportunity is being wasted because 535 elected officials are putting their interest first over the interest of the American People.’
C., you are right on it. It is time we realize that Trump came too late to the game. Obama, the House and the Senate and the mainstream media have already poisoned America and there is no antidote other than a miracle from God. And that miracle just might come in the form of a great disaster that would wake up half or more of our population. Shut down our grid and we are there. That might just be enough to wake us up. This country was founded on building a country. We don’t do well at maintaining. So, re-building might be our only hope. And with 535 obstructionists, I do not believe even Donald Trump can overcome them and what is happening right now in our country. Just being realistic. C, your letter is great and right on. But, only half of the country “get it”. And, very few in the other half who sort of “get it” will speak up. It’s kind of a microcosm of our Congress…isn’t it?….Keith
