"The Proposal"
When a company falls on difficult times, one of the things that seems to happen is they reduce their staff and workers. The remaining workers need to find ways to continue to do a good job or risk that their job would be eliminated as well. Wall street, and the media normally congratulate the CEO for making this type of "tough decision", and his board of directors gives him a big bonus.
Our government should not be immune from similar risks.
  Therefore: Reduce the House of Representatives from the current 435 members to 218 members and Senate members from 100 to 50 (one per State). Also reduce remaining staff by 25%.
Accomplish this over the next 8 years. (two steps / two elections) and of course this would require some redistricting.
Some Yearly Monetary Gains Include:
44,108,400 for elimination of base pay for congress. (267 members X 165,200 pay / member / yr.)
97,175,000 for elimination of the above people's staff.. (estimate 1.3 Million in staff per each member of the House, and 3
Million in staff per each member of the Senate every year)
240,294 for the reduction in remaining staff by 25%.
7,500,000,000 reduction in pork barrel ear-marks each year. (those members whose jobs are gone. Current estimates for total
government pork earmarks are at 15 Billion / yr)

The remaining representatives would need to work smarter and would need to improve efficiencies. It might even be in their
best interests to work together for the good of our country?
We may also expect that smaller committees might lead to a more efficient resolution of issues as well. It might even be easier to keep track of what your representative is doing.
Congress has more tools available to do their jobs than it had back in 1911 when the current number of representatives was
established. (telephone, computers, cell phones to name a few)
Congress did not hesitate to head home when it was a holiday, when the nation needed a real fix to the economic problems. Also, we have 3 senators that have not been doing their jobs for the past 18+ months (on the campaign trail) and still they all have been accepting full pay. These facts alone support a reduction in senators & congress.

Summary of opportunity:
44,108,400 reduction of congress members.
282,100, 000 for elimination of the reduced house
member staff.
150,000,000 for elimination of reduced senate member
59,675,000 for 25% reduction of staff for remaining
house members.
37,500,000 for 25% reduction of staff for remaining
senate members.
7,500,000,000 reduction in pork added to bills by the
reduction of congress members.
8,073,383,400 per year, estimated total savings.
(that's 8-BILLION just to start!)
Big business does these types of cuts all the time.
If Congress persons were required to serve 20, 25 or 30 years (like everyone else) in order to collect retirement benefits there is no telling how much we would save. Now they get full retirement after serving only ONE term.
IF you are happy how the Congress spends our taxes, then just delete this message. IF you are NOT at all happy, then I assume you know what to do.

It's Got my Vote!!!!!!!! 

From the Webmaster:  This is a letter that has been sent to me.  It's true.  Why should these public servants be paid retirement after only one term?  It's because they make the laws and voted it in for themselves!  Why should these public servants be paid so much?  They also get all kinds of other perks, on top of a reduction in force, RIF as we called it when I worked for government, they should get a reduction in pay.   They are also working on a Salary.  This means that they should work longer hours without extra pay.   They should be 65 years before they get any retirement.  They should pay for their own medical insurance and legal assistance.  President BJ Clinton should pay back back the tax payers the 100,000,000 that his Monica Affair cost the tax payers.  There's a lot that we can do right in the government, right now and they are servants, not royalty.  The government is of the people, for the people and by the people, so why should they get special benefits above the people.  Just because they do, it makes the government not by the people, but by the elite.  With 95% of the people not being millionaires, why is it that 95% of the government officials are millionaires.  The government is supposed to represent the people, but it appears that they are representing the 5%, the rich.  The above letter, who ever wrote it, was very, very smart.

Today I went to Wal-Mart in Peoria.  I always wear my USS Kitty Hawk Hat.  I was standing in the Sub Way Shop and a young lady came up to me and gave me a small slip of paper that was folded up and said, "This is for you."  I was thinking what is this all about, this is very strange.  When I opened the note here's what it said.

I just wanted to thank you for your service to our country, Forever Grateful, Amiee.

Thank you very much Amiee.  You have made my day.  I'm a disabled vet and have been going through some real bad times and you picked up my whole day.  Thank you again, C. Jeff Dyrek, Webmaster.

P.S.  I am sure that this note was not just for me, but for all service men and women who have worked so hard to keep our freedoms and to keep our country a favorite place to live.
