Convention of States!


Turns out “transitory” inflation wasn’t the correct term, federal officials finally admit

Published in Blog on June 08, 2022 by Article V Patriot

The nation's economic outlook is in the hands of Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, who admitted on Tuesday during a Senate Finance Committee hearing that the "transitory" inflation she and many other federal officials described several months ago was flat out wrong.

"As Chair Powell indicated himself, both of us probably could have used a better term than transitory," Yellen said, unable to give clear solutions to the current situation.

So the question is, was she incorrect in her prediction or was it an intentional misuse of wording in order to paint a better picture for the public temporarily? 

The U.S. economy faces unprecedented hardships that have no end in sight, despite the Biden administration dismissing the cause for concern just months ago. This is just another reminder of why we need a Convention of States – to address the government’s never-ending spending sprees, using money they don’t have, that end up harming the working class most.

Despite calling the financial struggles facing Americans "unacceptable," Yellen went on to claim that her agency is struggling to obtain enough resources to keep running smoothly. 

"The IRS is horrendously under-resourced. It has fewer staff than it had I believe 40 years ago," she added.

Notably, the IRS is growing quite significantly, adding 10,000 full-time jobs by the end of 2023. While Yellen is, in fact, receiving extra funding and more staff to monitor Americans’ money, hard-working Americans will be trying to make ends meet in order to pay for the growing government.

Meanwhile, federal workers are hoping to receive around a 6% pay raise in 2023, conveniently adjusting their income for the inflation they have caused. 

We the People care about our personal finances more than politicians do, and we can permanently and legally limit the power of federal agencies so that America's free-market economy can prosper again.

Called and controlled by the states, an Article V Convention of States can propose constitutional amendments to limit the size and scope of the government so that unwise, unelected and ineffective federal officials are kicked to the curb with term limits and power restraints.

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:

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: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
