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/
Alarmingly, #JR8 had BIPARTISAN support in the IA House. Still, u probably should focus on Senate Republicans first. Here is a list w/ their names & numbers. Tell them u will #VoteThemOut if they vote for a Convention of States! iowasenaterepublicans.com/senators/ 2/
Next, you should convey the same message—vote NO on #JR8 or we will #Vote you out—to the Democratic leadership in the Iowa Senate. Here are their names & numbers. senate.iowa.gov/democrats/sena… 3/
Here is a link to #JR8 calling for Iowa to join the push for an Article V Convention of States to amend the US Constitution aka Constitutional Convention. #NoConCon legis.iowa.gov/legislation/Bi… 4/
The #KochBrothers and their legislative arm called #ALEC (which drafts model legislation) are behind the push for an Article V Convention of States aka Constitutional Convention. #NoConCon prwatch.org/news/2017/03/1… 5/
Here is an article re: the three dangerous groups calling for a Convention of States aka #ConCon. #JR8 in Iowa came from the group seeking the broadest changes (tho all 3 seek to eliminate SS, Medicare, EPA, & DOE based on a Balanced Budget Amendment). billmoyers.com/story/alec-con… 6/

I discussed #JR8 with @iowademocrats which confirmed a senate vote could occur any day between now and the end of the month! 8/
So please call! And don’t believe them when they say they just want to “balance the budget”! They plan to achieve such “balance” by eliminating the key government agencies (EPA, DOE, etc) & federal programs (SS, Medicare, etc) referenced above. 9/
Don’t believe them if they say they seek only a “Convention of States,” not a “Constitutional Convention”! This is a semantic trick! The so-called “Convention of States” seeks to amend the US Constitution & is thus for all practical purposes a “Constitutional Convention”! 10/
Likewise, don’t believe them if they say the Convention of States would be narrowly limited. Read what the Hawaii AG had to say about the possibility of it turning into an anything-goes #ConCon. 11/
Finally, please remember to be polite but firm. Threaten them with the ballot box, nothing more. Thanks. #NoConCon 12/
