My mail box has been filling up the past few weeks with something called a Congressional Reform Act of 2010 as "The answer!"
While I appreciate efforts by Americans to try and figure out some way to stop the corruption in the Outlaw Congress, people have to stop encouraging unconstitutional solutions.

A. Two Six-year Senate terms
B. Six Two-year House terms
C. One Six-year Senate term and three Two-Year House terms

4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise.  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 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 1/1/11.
