Coronavirus Pork? Politicians fill relief bill with postal service bailouts and carbon emissions restrictions

This is absolutely disgusting.

As the American people reel under the COVID-19 outbreak, our "leaders" in D.C. are trying to score political wins at our expense.

Senate Republicans have offered a relief package that, while not perfect, would give Americans a measure of flexibility as they try to weather this economic storm. 

Today it looks like Senate Democrats have reached an agreement with their colleagues across the aisle, but the House is a different story.

As Rachel Bovard outlines in a devastating Twitter thread, the House version of the bill is filled with measures that have nothing whatsoever to do with the coronavirus outbreak.


Believe it or not, the list goes on. As reported by Fox News, the bill also includes funding for the Kennedy Center and "Obamaphones."

We can't trust Congress to put our needs ahead of their political agenda. Americans' lives are on the line, and all they can think about is scoring political points that have nothing to do with the crisis at hand.

If this kind of behavior makes you want to strip Congress of its power, you've come to the right place.

An Article V Convention of States can propose constitutional amendments that limit the power, scope, and jurisdiction of the federal government. Once ratified by 38 states (after the convention), these amendments can limit the topics on which Congress can legislate, the issues on which they can spend money, and the areas of American life they can control.

The political class in D.C. has had their chance. Now it's time for We the People to take control, and we can do it with an Article V Convention of States.

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:

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: or (540) 441-7227.

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

Respectfully, [Your Name]
