Dear Oregon Patriots,
You are our Oregon minutemen. This is our time. 2017 is our year!
Rep. Gene Whisnant (R, Sunriver) said yesterday he can’t be Chief Sponsor on our COS bill, but he will be Chief Sponsor on another Article V bill, for a Balanced Budget Amendment only.
BUT WAIT! If Washington DC is forced to Balance the Budget, how do you think they will do it?
Will they cut expenses? Dumb programs? Their salaries? NO!
They will balance the budget by RAISING TAXES ON THE BACKS OF HARDWORKING OREGONIANS AND AMERICANS!
YET, our COS proposal, with 1) fiscal restraints, 2) reduce the size and scope of the federal government and 3) term limits (not just on Congress, but on the Supreme Court, all federal courts and all federal agencies) will allow some PROPER FIXES to the U.S. Constitution that won’t be on the backs of hardworking Oregonians & Americans!
At our Simulated Convention of States at Colonial Williamsburg in September, 150 delegates from all 50 states wrote 6 amendment proposals in 2 days; what Congress has NOT done in decades! You can READ their proposed amendments here (Look for the FISCAL RESTRAINTS ideas):
OFFICIAL PROPOSALS OF THE SIMULATED CONVENTION OF STATES
Which do you think is a BETTER IDEA?
This is the Beginning of Draining the SWAMP in Oregon folks.
We must be VERY VOCAL. We must be FIRM.
We must be polite, respectful & grateful for our Legislators’ service to Oregon.
Rep. Whisnant is also an Air Force Veteran. Please thank him for that service as well.
If your legislator is a Veteran, please thank them for their service too!
1) Contact Rep. Gene Whisnant by phone, email, facebook, twitter, voicemail, or show up at his office. TODAY!
Let him know what you think of this. Which Article V bill is a better idea?
Are you Fed up with Legislators not listening to the people? Tell him that too!
Tell him you want him to be Chief Sponsor of our House COS bill.
Rep. Gene Whisnant’s Phone: 503-986-1453
Phone is best. They have to answer and are paid to be polite to you.
2) Contact your own Oregon Legislators.
Let them know you want THEM to sponsor our COS bill.
Let them know you are fed up with Legislators not listening to the people!
