Washington is dysfunctional & broken, period, dot, point. And they will never reform themselves. This has become glaringly clear to Representative Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) so he’s outta there. Who can blame him?
Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight Committee said,
“The reality is, sadly, I don’t see much difference between the Trump administration and the Obama administration. In many ways, it’s almost worse, because we’re getting nothing, and that’s terribly frustrating and with all due respect, the Attorney General has not changed at all. I find him to be worse than what I saw with Loretta Lynch in terms of releasing documents and making things available.”
Congressman Trey Goudy will replace Chaffetz as head of the Oversight Committee, but I don’t see him as any more dynamic that any of the rest of the Republicans in getting the job of reform done in Congress.
The only answer in reforming Washington D.C. and bringing power back to “We the People” is through an Article 5 (part ‘B’ of Article V of the US Constitution) Convention of States (COS).
Every republic in the past has failed for the same reason; fiscal issues and an over-powerful central government. The Founders knew that this was likely to happen. That’s why they gave us in the Constitution a way to fix this. A way to limit the scope and jurisdiction of the Federal Government.
Go to the Convention of States website to learn more. Sign up for their email news alerts and volunteer! Twelve states have passed the COS Resolution. Thirty-four are needed to trigger the Convention. The Convention is focused & limited to:
- Fiscal restraints on the Federal Government
- Limiting the power & jurisdiction of the Federal Government
- Term limits to send career politicians packing!
