I have Answer to our Deficit. It's common sense. My Reform Act for Congress would fix everything in less then a year.

 To bad Congress would never pass a Bill that invades their Perks from Government and money making opportunities from work. 

If I were President, I would create a bill to once and four all fix broken Congress. Serving the American people has vanished. First day in office, I would bring down the National debt in the Trillions. Just for starters, here a little something listed below I would do my first day in office.

"I could end the deficit in 5 minutes,"  "You just pass a law that reads anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election. The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971... before computers, e-mail, cell phones, etc. Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land...all because of public pressure.

*Congressional Reform Act of 2017*
1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are 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. Including paying taxes on time, random drug testing, or face termination from Congress.
7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/2017. 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 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. Maybe it is time.
8.  President loses the $450,000 a year retirement package after term is done. They use their own retirement plan they choose at the beginning of term.
