About Christine

I believe in the CONSERVATIVE principles and values of the Republican Party as they are written, and not how they are currently practiced by today's RINO's. Smaller government, lower taxes, more personal responsibility, states' rights, free market capitalism, and less government intrusion in our lives!

    Congressional Reform Act of 2011
    THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!!!!! THIS IS HOW WE CUT “SOME” MONEY!!
    A START – Notify your Representative how we can save money right away!
    1. Term Limits
    12 years only, one of the possible options below:
    A. Two Six-year Senate terms
    B. Six Two-year House terms
    C. One Six-year Senate term and three Two-Year House terms

    2. No Tenure / No Pension.
    A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when
    they are out of office.

    3. 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 rest of the American people.

    4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.

    5. Congress will no longer vote themselves pay raises. Congressional pay will
    rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

    6. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same
    health care system as the rest of the American people.

    7. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.

    8. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/2012.
    The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen.
    Congressmen 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 ten people then it will only take three
    days for most people (in the U.S. ) to receive the message. Maybe it is time
    we take back our country. Demand that this Congressional Reform Act of 2011 is voted on and passed. Call “Ten” people or e-mail “10” people, ask them to contact there Representatives, Demand this is passed, NOW! Tell your Representatives they best take this seriously.

    Its about time the ones we put into office live the life they want us to live. No more special treatment. We put you in office to help us run our country, not to become special.

    CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVES, LIGHT UP THOSE LINES, GET YOUR E-MAILS MOVING. This is something that should have happened many years ago.

    Actually this should pass rather quickly. They all feel how we have to live is fine, our Representatives should be more than willing to live the same, Right?

      Here is a reference or info on the candidates stances on immigration policy. Gives an immigration report card grade. This grade card comes from numbersUSA.com (a leading pro-U.S. immigration reform group). Immigration is a different issue than most others that receives responses all over the place. NumbersUSA seems pretty strict or critical here but also includes a factor of the candidate’s willingness to even deal with the issue at all (which is actually very important as the U.S. still takes in 1million legal immigrants a year, where many are foreign workers supplanting American workers – which begs the question why? when the U.S. is ailing in recession). An example of criticalness was when Ron Paul was downgraded to an F grade — however Ron Paul belives more in just removing the magnets (jobs) and handouts (food stamps,medical,etc.) rather than going the way of hard enforcement such as ICE raids,etc. But it must be said that in order to remove the incentives then the enforcement of law (which is what gov’t has responsibility to do – executive branch more so) has to be there such as E-verify program (jobs) or ID document proof (food stamps,medical,etc.) This helps in general reference and gives an idea.

    I don’t find where this act has been introduced in the House although I have seen this proposal being circulated for some time now . It may be appropriate for many of us to contact Representative Patrick McHenry and insist he introduce this proposal editing out the parts which may be untrue. I might add I contacted him in 2010 and he stated some of these claims are untrue. I am in total agreement with 1 through 8 above but not sure where the truth lies in each claim. If anyone can verify the claim that Congressional members do not pay into social security, I would be interested in their findings.

    FACT: When Ronald Reagan arrived at the White House, the national debt was $1 trillion. When he left office, the debt had increased to $1.9 trillion. Then George H. W. Bush added (in just four years) $1.5 trillion. Bill Clinton raised the country’s debt by $1.4 trillion, Obama by $2.4 trillion.

    However, George W. Bush is in a class of his own. During his two terms of office he added the trifling sum of $6.4 trillion, which is 44.7 percent of the federal government’s total debt of $14.3 trillion.

    6.4 TRILLION. Almost more than EVERY OTHER president listed, combined!

    Just wondering who added the remaining 0.7 Trillion or is my calculator in need of repair?

    In my post dated 5/31/11: “If anyone can verify the claim that Congressional members do not pay into social security, I would be interested in their findings.” – I am still curious as to the answer and why this requirement was listed in the Congressional Reform Act of 2011 (which was originally dated the Congressional Reform Act of 2010). There is no disagreement with the total intent of the above posts but accuracy should be a concern or creditability is lost.
