Public knowledge, Congress votes on yearly salary increases and enhanced lifetime retirement for themselves, but they are unwilling to do anything for the American workers who have lost a majority if not all of their retirement.
Congress gets their retirement, regardless of length (or lack thereof) of service or terms served.
We, the undersigned, petition the United States Government, via the Redress of Grievances as guaranteed by the Constitution, want put onto the 2008 Federal ballot, to force congress to place all pay increases and retirement benefits and the granting of retirements to any and all respective retiring Congress persons, for vote by the people.
We the people, shall have complete and absolute control of any and all pay increases and retirement benefits by way of absolute vote. Such voting shall be performed on a bi-yearly basis. All retirements shall be reduced by 80%, there will be no continuation of salary through retirement.
