Smashing the DC Monopoly – Tom Coburn
Smashing the DC Monopoly – Using Article V to Restore Freedom and Stop Runaway Government.
Pork-barrel projects like the $452 million bridge to nowhere and Keynesian economic debacles like the $840 billion stimulus package that saved as few as 600,000 jobs ($1.4 million per job) have led to a staggering $20 trillion in national debt (about $150,000 per citizen). With most members of Congress focusing only on their own interests, it s time to smash the DC elitists monopoly and rein in spending and extra constitutional overreach.
Although the Constitution established a framework for limited federal power and expansive personal freedoms, self-interested politicians and activist court rulings have seriously imbalanced the system. Smashing the DC Monopoly provides the solution to how we the people can finally wrest control away from Washington insiders and back to our local and state representatives.
Having spent more than fifteen years fighting government fraud and irresponsibility, Sen. Tom Coburn reveals that at least $150 billion could be saved annually by eliminating waste and duplication in the federal government. Indeed, while serving on the Simpson-Bowles Commission Senator Coburn worked on a proposal to reduce the deficit by $4 trillion over ten years (which, although a good first step, is but still a drop in the bucket compared to the federal government s $143 trillion in unfunded liabilities).
Yet the profligate spending and mismanagement continue unabated. In fact, the growth of government has led to a divided, debt-ridden nation of dependent citizens with decreasing personal freedoms. It s time for the people to take charge.
Tom Coburn is one of the most remarkable Senators who have served… His whole philosophy and approach to government, had it been more effectively followed by other Members of this body, would have led us to a better country. –Attorney General Jeff Sessions
The federal government is out of control. It s time for the states to take back control from Congress, and Senator Coburn explains how in this fantastic book. By amending the Constitution through an Article V convention, we the people can limit the spending, limit the regulation, and limit the time in office. Smashing the DC Monopoly is essential for any politician who loves liberty and for all of us who want to hold our representatives accountable –Mark Levin
