Iowa voters! The Iowa House has passed Joint Resolution 8 calling for an Article V Convention of States to amend the US Constitution-as desired by #ALEC & #Kochs! The senate will vote ANY DAY! Tell ur state senators 2 vote NO! Contact info & more below #NoConCon #KochBrothers 1/
Find ur Iowa state senators here & tell them 2 vote NO on Joint Resolution 8 calling for an Article V “Convention of State” 2 amend the US Constitution! This is a #KochBrothers resolution meant 2 decimate the federal govt & to eliminate SS & Medicare! 2/ openstates.org/find_your_legi…
Here is a link to Joint Resolution 8. 3/ legis.iowa.gov/legislation/Bi…
Here’s an email sent by the Convention of States project president on about 3/28/18. (Recipient wishes to be anonymous.) It says the vote on #JR8 will be ANY DAY. The #KochBrothers have $$$ to persuade senators to vote yes. You must use your voices to persuade them to vote NO! 4/
The Convention of States project is a product of #ALEC, a #KochBrothers funded group that drafts model legislation. This is dangerous stuff! 5/ alec.org/model-policy/a…
Urgent! @IowaDemocrats must not know that Joint Resolution 8-calling for an Article V Convention of States—is a product of #ALEC & the #Kochs. The Resolution passed the House w/ BIPARTISAN support! We must wake up @IowaDemocrats b4 the senate vote! 6/ amp.desmoinesregister.com/amp/334993002?…

- The proposed Convention of States would seek to eliminate the Department of Education and to decimate public schools (and SS and Medicare) under the deceptive guise of a Balanced Amendment! Vote NO

Per @StaedArt, a similar joint resolution, JR 9, already passed the IA House & Senate (tho won’t be finalized b4 2019). Both JR 9 & JR8 (on which senate will vote soon) seek a #KochBrothers Convention of States aka Constitutional Convention! #NoConCon /9

My educated guess is that JR8 would seek even more radical changes than JR9. Both are supported by #ALEC, a #Koch funded group. Both would be disastrous for democracy!
Iowa voters! @iowademocrats recommends that u contact the IA Senate Republicans at 515.281.3371 & tell them that Joint Resolution 8–calling 4 a #KochBrothers Convention of States (aka Constitutional Convention)—is a voting issue. If they pass #JR8, u will #VoteThemOut! #NoConCon
