Congressional Reform Act Proposal

Congressional Reform Act of 2013

1A. Congressional candidates will not accept campaign funds from PACs and SuperPACs…

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 & 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 12/31/13. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women.

Congressmen/women 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.

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. Don’t you think it’s time?

Three Green Party Candidates for Congress in California

join the California Green Wave to support our three congressional candidates Kenneth Mejia (CD 34), Rodolfo Cortes Barragan (CD 40), and Laura Wells (CD 13).

These three California candidates have advanced to the 2018 General Election, so we have an historic opportunity to break through the duopoly and bring national attention to our Green values and priorities. If there was ever a time to put Greens in congress, it is NOW!

Our corporate-free Green Party doesn’t need billionaires and their corporations funding our campaigns. We can WIN with PEOPLE POWER!

We need YOU to join the Green Wave!

This is how we defeat big money, THREE Clean, Green Candidates at a time!

We are helping Kenneth Mejia build a team of 10,000 volunteers and campaigners nationwide and we need your help too. Los Angeles area volunteers can walk precincts and canvass, but you can also volunteer from anywhere in the country by phone banking, donating, and promoting Kenneth’s campaign on social media. Sign up to volunteer today: https://www.mejia4congress.com/volunteer

All three of our California candidates will be at Green Party Annual National Meeting in Salt Lake City this weekend to spread the word about our historic opportunity. You can watch the national meeting proceedings live-streamed on GP-US Facebook or Twitter.

Help spread the word! Share this message with Greens and other progressives, and share your photos and ideas with us on social media using the tags @GreenPartyCalifornia and #CAGreens
