Convention of States!


Feds send 1 million COVID-19 aid payments to dead people, totaling over $1.4 billion

The federal government wasted over $1.4 billion taxpayer dollars by sending one million COVID-19 aid payments to dead people, according to a new report from the Government Accountability Office. 

The Washington Post reports,

The problem relates partly to the fact that, while the IRS has access to the Social Security Administration’s full set of death records, the Treasury Department and its Bureau of the Fiscal Service — which actually issue the payments — do not, GAO said.

Our country is sinking in $26 trillion of national debt. Our economy is struggling under the weight of tyrannical COVID-19 lockdown orders, and millions of Americans are out of work. 

Meanwhile, our federal officials -- bureaucrats and politicians alike -- can't get their act together. They waste our money at an astronomical rate, and they're unconcerned about the fast-approaching fiscal cliff.

To make matters worse, some of them believe they should be given even more power. Socialist politicians like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are pushing for total federal control of healthcare, education, and private industry. 

The feds can't even figure out how to share simple death records -- how can they possibly administer a nationalized healthcare system or a "Green New Deal"?

They can't, of course, which is why millions of Americans have joined the Convention of States Project to push back against big-government socialism and irresponsible government waste.

A Convention of States is called under Article V of the Constitution and has the power to propose constitutional amendments. These amendments can reduce the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, forever prohibiting the kind of big-government takeover proposed by Sanders and others.

These amendments can also force Congress to be fiscally responsible by requiring a balanced budget while prohibiting them from raising taxes. 

The feds need to spend less, not more. They need less responsibility, not more. And they need less power over the daily lives of the American people -- not more.

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]
