With the Senate’s failure to repeal ObamaCare, the American people want to see Congress taking concrete actions to finally Drain the Swamp.
And my son, Sen. Rand Paul’s REINS Act (S. 21/H.R. 26) could do just that!
The truth is, there’s practically no other bill in Washington, D.C. that makes Big Government bureaucrats more FURIOUS.
For decades, these out-of-control overlords have (UNCONSTITUTIONALLY) ruled virtually every aspect of American life by decree.
You and I have been almost powerless to do anything about it.
The good news is, if passed, the REINS (Regulations from the Executive In Need of Scrutiny) Act could stop the power-hungry bureaucrats at the BATFE, EPA, ED, FDA, IRS, HHS -- and those in virtually every other government agency -- cold.
But the news is not all good . . .
I recently learned from a loyal friend and Capitol Hill insider that some members of the U.S. Senate are scheming to water down -- or even KILL -- the REINS Act before it can even be voted on!
That’s why I’m counting on your IMMEDIATE action.
As you’ll see, this petition insists Mitch McConnell schedule a roll-call vote on the REINS Act as soon as possible to prevent this handful of Senators from derailing yet another common sense bill to help the American people.
And if possible, please agree to a generous contribution as well.
Please agree to $100, $250, or $500 if you can afford it. Or, if that’s too much, please agree to $50, $25, or even just $10.
Without your action today, I’m afraid this could be an enormous missed opportunity for you and me to finally rein in out-of-control government.
Just consider the madness we witnessed during Obama’s presidency where:
*** Government agencies added 20,642 new regulations at a rate averaging almost 80,000 pages a year!
*** New regulations inflicted more than $100 BILLION in economic damage from 2009-2016!
*** The EPA alone issued 4,000 new rules!
Estimates are that federal regulations as a whole cost the U.S. economy over $2 trillion every year!
But if passed, the REINS Act would prohibit out-of-control government bureaucrats from imposing major regulations without a vote by Congress.
In other words, the FCC, EPA, and TSA can make all the
“recommendations” they want, but they’ll mean absolutely nothing unless passed by Congress with a majority vote.
So you and I will have the chance to mobilize to DEFEAT these regulations -- or hold politicians who vote for them accountable!
In short, REINS strips these massive and bloated unconstitutional bureaucracies of most of their power -- paving the way for their outright ELIMINATION.
Talk about Draining the Swamp!
On paper, this vote should come down to just a handful of senators . . .
You see, while the bill passed with overwhelming Republican votes in the U.S. House, there are many members of the Senate in BOTH parties who represent states hit hard by the Obama administration’s regulatory tirades.
Many represent states President Trump won, and they are already nervous about their reelections.
So, turning a handful is very possible and could break a filibuster and guarantee REIN’s passage -- if Republican “moderates” don’t work with “liberal” Democrats to sabotage it.
Sadly, that’s what I’m worried about right now.
Instead of daring senators who are wavering on REINS to vote “NO!” and risk their political careers, some are looking for ways to weaken REINS by increasing the threshold for a congressional vote far past $100 million!
And it’s all being done in secret because they’re scared of your action.
That’s why I’m counting on you to sign your petition right away.
And if possible, please also agree to your most generous contribution as well, to help Campaign for Liberty pull out all the stops to pass REINS.
Using direct mail and email -- in addition to Internet, radio, and newspaper advertising -- my goal is to light a fire under certain members of the U.S. Senate whose votes are up in the air.
With your help, this could be the difference!
After all, if he’s hit with a firestorm of grassroots pressure, does Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia really want to vote against the REINS Act -- especially after complaining non-stop about how President Obama’s EPA destroyed coal jobs?
So just forcing a Senate vote on the REINS Act puts you and me in a win-win situation -- if we can force a vote and stop a weak-kneed “compromise.”
That’s why I’m counting on your support.
First, won’t you please sign your petition to Mitch McConnell, urging him to quickly schedule a roll-call vote on the REINS Act?
And then, if you can, I hope you’ll also rush me your most generous contribution -- $100, $250, $500, or even more if you can possibly afford it.
I know that’s a lot to ask for.
But should you and I succeed in passing the REINS Act, it would be a massive blow against Big Government.
Bloated and unconstitutional federal bureaucracies will see much of their power stripped -- paving the way for their outright ELIMINATION.
Of course, if $100, $250, or $500 is just too much, I hope you’ll agree to a contribution of $50, $25, or even $10.
