Pennsylvanians Unite: Overwhelming Bipartisan Support for Convention of States


Pennsylvanians Unite: Overwhelming Bipartisan Support for Convention of States

In a groundbreaking poll, the Convention of States team reveals remarkable bipartisan backing for the national grassroots initiative in Pennsylvania. The survey, conducted this week among 800 Pennsylvania voters, demonstrates a consensus on the need for constitutional reforms.

Noteworthy findings include a staggering 69% of Republicans, 70% of Democrats, and an impressive 77% of Independents willing to cross party lines in support of a candidate championing the Convention of States cause.

The data further reveals that 90% of state residents advocate for term limits, while 88% express concern about the $34 trillion national debt. Only 7% trust Washington to make crucial policy decisions impacting their lives.

With a supermajority (67%) of Pennsylvanians supporting the Convention of States cause—focused on term limits, federal spending restraints, and limiting federal government size and jurisdiction—the initiative enjoys backing from various demographics. Notably, 74% of Independents, three-fourths of blacks, and 63% of Hispanics are among the strong supporters.

Convention of States President Mark Meckler notes, "These results send a powerful message: Convention of States is a unifying cause that resonates across party affiliations."

This overwhelming consensus reflects a united call for transformative constitutional reforms. As support surges in Pennsylvania, citizens look to their legislators to back this bipartisan cause, reinforcing the need for proper checks and balances at the state level.

Physicians for COS

The diagnosis is clear.

We have a growing cancer today known as the Obamacare. As a result physicians are no longer free to practice medicine.

No profession feels the full force of the federal government more than physicians. The medical profession is the most highly regulated profession in the United States. The practice of medicine is controlled, taxed, and regulated to the point of being destroyed by the heavy hand of the federal government.

Physicians are told how to bill, how much to charge, and how to treat patients. They are mandated to use expensive electronic medical records. The federally enacted HIPPA (Health Information Privacy and Portability Act) makes the communication between physicians and atients burdensome, inefficient,and expensive. Every physician is required by federal mandate to register with the government to obtain an NPI (national provider identifier.) We are required by federal law to obtain and pay for a license to prescribe medication through the DEA, which is separate from our state licensure.

This heavy hand of government not only oversees the largest federal health bureaucracy ever created, but by extension reaches into every state, every city, and every small town to regulate how every licensed physician practices the art of medicine and how citizens obtain care.

The treatment is also clear.

The prescription for a cure was written into our constitution by our founders. Article V of our constitution allows for the states to call for a convention of states to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government through the proposal of constitutional amendments. Physicians should be the strongest supporters of this brilliantly-crafted states’ rights tool placed into our constitution by our founders.

I urge my fellow American physicians to join with me in supporting an Article V Convention of States to take back control of the practice of medicine. It’s the only way that we can return the practice of medicine back to the intimate relationship between a doctor and patient without interference by the heavy hand of a distant, national government.
