Only 26.4% of Voters Looking to the CDC/Federal Government for COVID-19 Direction According to New National Poll from Convention of States Action and The Trafalgar Group

(Austin, TX—May 17th, 2021) Convention of States Action, in partnership with The Trafalgar Group—one of America’s most accurate pollsters in 2016, 2018 and 2020—is releasing the results of a new national survey. Conducted from May 14th thru May 16th, the poll of 1,531 likely general election voters has a margin of error of 2.51%. 

“Americans are tired of the ever-changing mixed messages, partisanship, lack of clarity, and lack of common sense coming out of Washington, DC on COVID-19. They’re clearly returning to normal life and are tuning out Dr. Anthony Fauci, the CDC, and federal officials,” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action. “Clearly, voters are instead looking to leaders who are taking a pragmatic approach. Last week, our polling revealed a surge in support for Governor Ron DeSantis in Florida, whose data-driven, scientific Pandemic policies—which take into consideration personal and religious liberty, as well as economic concerns—have earned him national accolades.”

About Convention of States Action—Boasting a grassroots network of over 5 million supporters and volunteers, Convention of States’ mission is to restore a culture of self-governance in America and to curtail federal overreach. Its primary focus in accomplishing this mission is using a limited Article V Convention to propose constitutional amendments that impose limitations on the size and scope of the federal government, including a balanced budget requirement and term limits for federal officials.

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.
