Convention of States!


Republican infighting allows Dems to secure $5 billion in new domestic spending

Published in Blog on July 17, 2017 by Convention Of States Project

Republicans aren't ready to lead, and that's never been more clear. 

The Washington Post reports that Republican infighting has allowed Democrats to secure $5 billion in new domestic spending. 

The inability of Republicans to agree on a spending bill gave Democratic politicians the opportunity to secure huge concessions, expanding the budget and potentially ballooning the national debt.

So even as Republicans decry the deficit and the growing budget, they're entirely incapable -- despite majorities in both the house and the senate and control of the White House -- to do anything about it.

It's time for the American people to take matters into their own hands.

Millions have joined the movement to call an Article V Convention of States. A Convention of States is entirely controlled by state legislatures and has the authority to propose constitutional amendments.

These amendments can force Congress -- Democrats and Republicans alike -- to make the tough decisions that actually decrease national spending and debt.

Republicans can't be trusted to deliver on their promises. Fortunately, the Founders gave the people a way to save their nation even when their "leaders" won't.
