The Great Debate!

Posted in politics with tags , , on February 14, 2011 by spikestl

Come hear the Great Debate!!!

Decide for yourself:
Will an Article V Convention save our Constitution…..
….. or destroy it???

The currently proposed Repeal Amendment would give state legislatures veto power over any federal law or regulation they didn’t like — whether it passes constitutional muster or not:

“Any provision of law or regulation of the United States may be repealed by the several states, and such repeal shall be effective when the legislatures of two-thirds of the several states approve resolutions for this purpose that particularly describe the same provision or provisions of law or regulation to be repealed.”

Such an amendment would call for an Article V Convention…..

The Article V/ Repeal Amendment Debate

Posted in Cool Beans with tags , , on January 23, 2011 by spikestl

Please join us for a debate on the merits and dangers of an Article V Constitutional convention to amend the US Constitution.
Many states including Missouri are or have introduced legislation requesting an article V convention to consider the Repeal Amendment.
This is a very important debate.
We the people need to be informed and understand the pros and cons of such an action.
If this happens it will be the first convention convened since since the passage of the US Constitution.

Akin Alert: 112th Congress Gets to Work – 01/05/11

Posted in My E-mail with tags , , on January 6, 2011 by spikestl

Dear Spike,

Today, the 112th Congress will be sworn in. While some might see this as a formality, I believe that it is an important reminder that we act under the authority of the Constitution and within the powers it delegates to us.

The Oath

Article VI of the Constitution, states that “The Senators and Representatives shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution.”

I, along with my colleagues from across the country, will take this Oath today:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

Fidelity to this Oath is about much more than lip-service. It means knowing what the Constitution says and considering each vote in light of the Oath we take at the beginning of each legislative session.

The Job

After the 112th Congress is seated, we will get to work. Here’s a quick look at what I’ve been doing and what we expect to change this Congress.

For the first time ever, this session of Congress will begin with a public reading of the U.S. Constitution.
In the new Congress, floor time will not be spent on symbolic resolutions.
Every bill introduced in the 112th Congress will have to cite the section of the Constitution which gives Congress authority to enact it.
In January, we expect to vote on legislation to repeal the government takeover of the health care industry which was enacted last year.

I have cosponsored legislation to repeal the 1099 reporting requirement in the health care law, which burdens job creators with the requirement to report every business transaction that costs more than $600.
The House Rules Package, which lays out how the House will do business this Congress, includes my amendment requiring each committee to include proposals for eliminating wasteful spending in their oversight plan.
One of our first priorities on January 6th will be to vote on legislation reducing the amount of money the House of Representatives spends on day-to-day operations.

Let me know what you think. What else should be our list of top priorities?

Sincerely,

W. Todd Akin
