According to a new poll, 76 percent of likely voters say they are concerned with the size of our $31 trillion debt.
A further breakdown of the poll confirms that this is a bipartisan issue. The new poll reports that 87 percent of Republicans are concerned as well as 67 percent of Democrats.
Especially in this polarized age, there are very few things that Americans agree on; this is one of them.
Three-Fourths of Voters Concerned About the Size ($31+ Trillion) of the National Debt; 53% Are ‘Very Concerned’https://t.co/jq8ukVIKrF— Rasmussen Reports (@Rasmussen_Poll) January 10, 2023
Yet despite the bipartisan consent that we need to do something about our national debt, we can safely assume that Congress will stand idly by.
At every turn, it will continue to overstep its bounds, ignoring the hefty price tag attached to its unconstitutional expenditures.
And We the People will pick up the tab.
Congress no longer cares that it is driving future generations into debt with its reckless spending.
We can only imagine what the national debt, which has increased by $1.8 trillion in the past year, will look like a year from now. Ten years from now. When our grandchildren are starting families of their own. But it’s a safe bet that it won’t be any better.
…unless we call a Convention of States
Though our elected officials in D.C. are unwilling to make a change and save us from this massive debt, through Convention of States, we can impose fiscal restraints on Congress and the federal government.
It may be the only way to do it.
The Founding Fathers put Article V into the Constitution as a safe, effective way to stave off federal tyranny. D.C. has become so disconnected from the middle class in America–so intrusive in its demands of us–there is no question that the Founders would want us to utilize Article V.
As we head into legislative season, now is the perfect time to support Convention of States and pass our resolution in your state. Together, we can end the federal debt and tyranny.
