Missouri Congressman Eric Burlison has officially endorsed the Convention of States movement in our efforts to call an Article V convention to restrict federal overreach.
Burlison currently represents the 7th Congressional District in the United States House of Representatives. During his time serving in the Missouri legislature, he helped carry the Convention of States Resolution to passage, calling it one of his greatest legislative achievements.
"It is clear, Washington, D.C., will never fix itself. The States must act to save the country through a convention of states. It was an honor to carry the Convention of States' resolution during my time in the Missouri Legislature," Burlison said in a statement.
Missouri COS activists successfully pushed the Resolution over the finish line in 2017, and this latest endorsement comes as the team remains heavily active in the state's political affairs.
As the newest endorser of COS, Burlison can be counted on to push back against the D.C. norms, and his record reflects this view. Burlison has stood behind many efforts that restrict the government's power as a freshman in the U.S. Congress.
He praised the Supreme Court's decision to reject Biden's student loan forgiveness plan, and just recently, he called on the Department of Justice to provide documents in regard to Jack Smith's investigation of former President Donald Trump.
In relation to the Convention of States emphasis on government financial responsibility, Burlison voted against the deceptive Fiscal Responsibility Act, calling it a "business-as-usual deal" that adds at least $4 trillion to the national debt. He said his constituents sent him to Congress "to end Washington’s spending addiction and fight the swamp, not enable it. That’s why I voted to oppose the bill.”
As the COS grassroots movement grows stronger every day, We the People grow closer to forcing accountability onto the swamp. Every individual is critical in this fight, standing against the bureaucracy or enabling it.
