House Republicans and Dems pass $40 billion aid package for Ukraine while Americans sidestepped

Published in Blog on May 11, 2022 by Brianna Kraemer

It’s no secret that our country has quite a long list of problems currently. Our economy is on the brink of a collapse while inflation climbs to remarkable levels. Gas prices just hit a new high this week, the national average now stands at $4.37. And food shortages seem to be on the horizon with baby food wiped from the shelves nationwide. 

But what Congress is focused on this week is giving Americans’ hard-earned money to the Ukrainian government – $40 BILLION to be exact.

That’s how much Democrats are willing to protect another nation’s borders but just not our own. 

On Tuesday night, the military aid bill passed with a 368-57 vote, with only Republicans voting against the spending spree. The vast majority of both Democrats and Republicans supported the effort, which begs the question, do they even put a value on the U.S. dollar anymore?

Not just the monetary aspect, but how about the value of the American people who seem to wake up each day with more and more problems thanks to the government. 

Many well-known, outspoken Republicans diverted from the majority in voting against the bill, including COS endorsers and Representatives Chip Roy, Jeff Duncan, Louie Gohmert, Ralph Norman and Tracey Mann.

These are the steadfast leaders that don’t allow the inner political pressures to get in the way of their beliefs of minimal government spending.

That’s the mission of the Convention of States Project. We must impose fiscal restraints to stop our leaders from spending money we don’t have on things that have no real benefit to America. America First is a concept that a shocking amount of politicians apparently don’t agree with, but we can make them put our nation first by holding a convention using Article V of the Constitution.  

In a convention, all 50 states can gather together to discuss potentially implementing term limits on federal officials, fiscal restraints, and limiting the overall jurisdiction of the federal government.

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.
