Dear Chairman Arrington,
On behalf of the over 2 million members of the Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC), I am writing to encourage the passage of H. Con. Res. 24 to call for an Article V Convention to propose a Fiscal Responsibility Amendment to the Constitution. With more than enough states having passed resolutions calling for an Article V convention, AMAC is appreciative of your actions to move this process forward in Congress.
Time and time again, the federal government spends more money than they have at the expense of the American people. Excessive spending has burdened Americans with out-of-control inflation which has not only raised consumer prices but has left workers with incompatible wages, struggling to make ends meet. It was a bipartisan belief that additional spending was necessary during the coronavirus-19 pandemic. Now that the pandemic is over, federal spending remains ever-growing. Americans cannot continue down this ill-advised road.
AMAC supports H. Con. Res. 24’s call for a constitutional convention to rein in spending, we also urge Congress to pass legislation providing a code of conduct for delegates and requiring regular reporting on the convention’s proceedings.
Congress must be held to a higher standard of responsible spending and AMAC thanks Congressman Arrington for this necessary legislation to ensure that any constitutional amendments proposed by a convention are done so in a transparent and accountable manner.
