Federal Overreach Continues

Published in Uncategorized on May 14, 2022 by Mary Bailey

The United States government has become a juggernaut of unelected bureaucrats seeking to impose their dispositions on the American people.

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is the latest federal bloviator to weigh in on matters outside her jurisdiction during her recent testimony to the Senate Banking Committee.

Yellen's argument that "eliminating the right of women to make decisions about when and whether to have children would have very damaging effects on the economy and would set women back decades" is specious at best and inflammatory at worst.

What happened to personal responsibility in this country? There are a myriad of resources to prevent pregnancy and plenty of education on how to use them. 

When did the argument move from "abortion should be safe, legal and rare" to "abortion is a valid form of birth control guaranteed by the Constitution?"

Abortion should never have become a federal case. For America to stay on the course of prosperity and individual liberty, she needs to return to the principles of our founders by calling for an Article V Convention of States.

We must take back local control by imposing fiscal restraints on the federal government, limiting the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, and limiting the terms of office for its officials and for members of Congress. 

Start taking action by going here and signing the petition.

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.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
