Op-Ed: "8 Years After the Tea Party Wave, Congress Still Spends Like There’s No Tomorrow"

Published in Blog on November 02, 2018 by Article V Patriot

The following excerpt was written by Jake Grant and originally published on The Daily Signal

When it comes to our nation’s spending, most politicians are only interested in the time between now and the next election.

Because of this, we can’t rely on Congress to give us the full, honest truth about our fiscal trajectory and what exactly needs to change. We need independent voices.

One such voice came last week when the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget released a new report titled “The 75-Year Budget Outlook.” This report examines the impact of our nation’s finances on future decades, and offers insight into how we can start moving back in the direction of fiscal responsibility and solvency.

Right now, things aren’t looking good.


In the budget report that was recently released, Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget projects that in 75 years, federal debt will be more than 3.5 times the size of the economy under current law as written and at least six times the size of the economy if policies under current law are extended further after they expire. It quotes the Congressional Budget Office in its estimates, predicting that annual interest payments on the debt will continue unsustainably rising from 1.6 percent of gross domestic product in 2018 to 14.9 percent by 2093.

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 to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement 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 an 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 Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. 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]
