Stay MAD!


Retribution is less than 9 months away!

Read this and remember the elections in November 2010.

1. U...S. House & Senate have voted themselves $4,700 and $5,300 raises.
2. They voted to NOT give you a S.S. Cost of living raise in 2010 and 2011.
3. Your Medicare premiums will go up $285.60 for the 2-years
4. You will not get the 3% COLA: $660/yr.
5. Your total 2-yr loss and cost is -$1,600 or -$3,200 for husband and wife.
6. Over these same 2-years each Congress person will get an additional $10,000
7. Do you feel SCREWED YET?
8. Will they have your cost of drugs - doctor fees - local taxes - food, etc., decrease? NO WAY!!. Congress and all Federal Employees received a raise and have better health and retirement benefits than you or I will ever have!!! AT NO COST TO THEM!!!!! (YOUR TAXES PAY FOR IT ALL)
•Why should they care about you? •You never did anything about it in the past. •They think you are too stupid or don't care. •Do you really think that Nancy, Harry, Chris, Charlie, •Barnie, et al, care about you?

Send this message to those individuals --- "YOU'RE FIRED!"

In 2010 you will have a chance to get rid of the sitting Congress: up to 1/3 of the Senate and 100% of the House!

Make sure you're still mad in November 2010 and remind their replacements not to screw-up.

It is ok to forward this to your sphere of influence if you are finally tired of the abuse. Maybe it's time for Amendment 28 to the Constitution..

28th Amendment will be as follows:
"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators or Representatives, and Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States ..."
Let's get this passed around, folks - these people in Washington have brought this upon themselves! It's time for retribution. Let's take back America ..

My take? How about we ammend it that all pay raises must be voted on, and no automatic increase be allowed, and no member of congress shall receive any increase that was proposed, enacted or ammended during his term of service, nor shall any member of congress receive any further compensation for his service once he has been voted out of office, or his term of service is ended.
In other words, their pay is the same in year twenty that it was on the day they were first elected, and no retirement, no golden parachute. The same should apply to all political appointees, and I would even go so far as to set a percentage limit as to what any government employee can make.
