— David M. Walker Former Comptroller General of the United States
DAYTONA BEACH, FLORIDA, USA, July 29, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — A coalition of nonpartisan advocates concerned about the effects of inflation and the runaway national debt encourage state lawmakers across the country to support a state-drafted, voter-approved, inflation-fighting, fiscal responsibility amendment to the Constitution.
At an event this week, state lawmakers are being asked to make the case for the House’s recently introduced concurrent Resolution 101, which calls for a state convention under Article V to propose amendments to the Constitution. of the United States and stipulates the ratification by the conventions of the States, in fact a vote of the persons.
At the meeting, the US Stop Inflating team presents a life-size cutout of Superman with the face of George Washington. The figure features a QR code to connect affected voters with lawmakers and offer solutions to the current fiscal crisis facing the United States.
“If Congress had complied with the Constitution in 1979 by calling on the states to draft and the people to ratify an amendment to the United States’ balanced budget, we could have saved more than $29 trillion in debt and prevented a decline more than 70% of the purchasing power of the dollar,” said David Biddulph, co-founder of Let US Vote for a Balanced Budget Amendment Citizen’s Campaign. “The recession is officially upon us, and we need to act.”
“Any solution to the economic crisis, extreme taxation and rampant spending will require a vote of the people. A fiscal responsibility amendment would allow people to vote on the solution and choose a better future for generations to come,” Biddulph continued. “Congress has ignored its responsibility for too long. It’s time to let the people vote.
Recent legislation introduced in the House of Representatives calls on Congress to set the time and place for an Article V convention to propose budget restraints to the federal government, unless the archivist finds that the Congressional records do not support the conclusion that the thirty-four demands required to call a convention of states to propose amendments was never met.
“The founders of our country supported a constitutional amendment process that the states must lead,” said former US Comptroller General David Walker. “If Congress fails to act on the key constitutional amendment issues, then states can and should take the lead. If we don’t get our federal finances in order, our economic and national security and domestic peace will suffer over time.
