Biden administration sides with teacher's unions and against American families

Kids don't get or transmit COVID-19 in schools. The evidence for that is clear as study after study after study has confirmed.

The latest comes from a trio of Centers for Disease Control (CDC) officials, who argued as much in a new paper

“The preponderance of available evidence from the fall school semester has been reassuring insofar as the type of rapid spread that was frequently observed in congregate living facilities or high-density worksites has not been reported in education settings in schools,” the officials write.

So, why is the Biden administration -- who pledged to "follow the science" -- siding with teacher's unions and supporting their bid to keep schools closed? 

In a recent CNN interview, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain argued that schools aren't opening because they don't have the money to safely do so. He said the schools need money for new infrastructure, buildings, teachers, testing, and masks.

"We need Congress to pass that plan so we can do the kinds of things you need to do so that the schools can be safe, so that the teachers can be safe, so that the students can be safe," he said.

The CNN reporter, to her credit, followed up by pointing out that the reason most schools aren't reopening has nothing to do with infrastructure or testing: they aren't reopening because the teachers' unions refuse to work.

When asked why the unions are overriding what the science says, Klain simply said, "I don’t think unions are overruling studies. I think what you’re seeing is schools that haven’t made the investments to keep the students safe."

Isn't it strange that the unions are making exactly the same argument that Klain does? The unions are demanding things that neither the state nor the federal government can provide before they reopen. In the mean time, kids and families are suffering. 

We need to send a clear message to Washington: "You work for us, not special interests." Biden and his administration are clearly in bed with the teachers' unions. There's no other way to explain their opposition to school re-opening. When our federal politicians put big-money special interests over the good of their constituents, something needs to change.

An Article V Convention of States is the way to send that message. A Convention of States can propose constitutional amendments that limit the power, scope, and jurisdiction of the federal government. What does this mean? These amendments can strip Washington of their ability to make decisions over our daily lives. They can reduce Congress' budget and limit how much they can dole out to special interests. And they can limit the terms of office for all federal officials, including the bureaucrats who run the alphabet soup of federal agencies. 

No political solution can end corruption. But a Convention of States can limit the damage and put We the People back in charge of our country's future.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
