The federal government is contemplating stimulus packages to respond to the COVID-19 outbreak that could increase the deficit to $2 trillion next year.
It might be necessary to run up the deficit to get everyone through the next few months, but the past irresponsibility of our federal officials is making this stimulus package far more risky than it should be.

This is why we need to call a Convention of States. Scientists believe this won't be the last nationwide pandemic. When the next one hits, our country needs to be on better financial footing.
A Convention of States is called and controlled by the states and has the power to propose constitutional amendments that force Congress to be fiscally responsible. Once ratified by 38 states, these amendments will force Congress to balance the budget without raising taxes and cut wasteful and useless government programs and agencies.
Millions of Americans have voiced their support and 15 states are on board.
