15 Minute Budget Solution
The announcement today that the “Super Committee” had FAILED, made me thoroughly DISGUSTED!
I was so disgusted that I took an entire 15 minutes to compile a bill for Congress to take up immediately upon their return to D.C. following Thanksgiving.
H.R. _ _ _ _
To balance the budget, eliminate the deficit and restore long-term economic stability.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,
- the budgets of ALL departments, agencies, programs, entitlements and all branches of government will be reduced by five percent, effective immediately;
- all salaries, to all ELECTED and APPOINTED Federal officials will be suspended, effective immediately;
- all insurance coverage held by all elected Federal officials will be suspended, effective immediately;
- and all assets belonging to ELECTED Federal officials will be suspended, effective immediately.
The previously established conditions may be lifted when and only when:
- a balanced budget is passed and signed by the President;
- a plan to eliminate the deficit by 2022 is passed and signed by the President;
- a plan to make Social Security solvent is passed and signed by the President;
- and a plan to make Medi Care solvent is passed and signed by the President.
EFFECTIVE DATE – The actions of this section shall take effect on the date of the enactment of this Act.
Passed the House of Representatives, November 28, 2011
