PURCELLVILLE, Va. and AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today the U.S. Term Limits endorsed the Convention of States (COS) Project, joining with many like-minded organizations dedicated to reining in a bloated, corrupt federal government. "Career politicians are a big part of the problem," said Mark Meckler, president of Citizens for Self-Governance and co-founder of the COS Project. "Thankfully, U.S. Term Limits has been stalwart in their advocacy of limiting the power on Capitol Hill. More than seventy-five percent of U.S. citizens agree on term limits, but do you think that politicians will vote to limit themselves? Article V will allow citizens to send career politicians packing by passing a term limit amendment." Nick Tomboulides, Director, U.S. Term Limits, agrees that the COS Project will empower citizens. "Established in 1992, U.S. Term Limits is the nationwide leader in the movement to enact term limits at all levels of government in the United States. After achieving state-imposed term limits on 23 states' congressional delegations -- encompassing nearly half of the U.S. Congress -- USTL saw these efforts undone by an activist Supreme Court in the 1995 decision U.S. Term limits v. Thornton," said Tomboulides. "Today, it advocates for a constitutional amendment limiting U.S. House members to no more than three terms and U.S. Senate members to no more than two. The Article V Convention process presents a golden opportunity to pass a term limits amendment. The Convention of States legislation identifies term limits as a core component of any convention, and we fully support COS's effort to restore citizen government in America." The Convention of States Project currently has organized leadership in 43 states around the country, including thousands of volunteers committed to stopping the federal government's abuse of power. Three Article V applications have already been passed in Alaska,…
WASHINGTON, Oct. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and Writer, Director and Producer Adam McKay today launched a video, website and scorecard exposing members of Congress for the campaign dollars they have taken from the corporate gun lobby, while blocking life-saving legislation that would keep guns out of the hands of criminals. The www.lapdogscorecard.org website and video, which shows a "congressman" doing tricks for gun lobby dog treats, calls out all legislators regardless of their party based on two simple criteria: do they take money from the corporate gun lobby, and do they support expanding Brady background checks to online and gun show sales? More than one-half (53 percent) of the members of the 113th Congress are "Lap Dogs" who take money from the corporate gun lobby in exchange for blocking Brady background check legislation. Of the members of Congress who don't support expanding background checks to online and gun show sales, 95 percent of them have taken money from the corporate gun lobby (over $5 million since 1990). The "Lap Dogs" include House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), who hasn't allowed a House vote on background checks, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), House Judiciary Chair, Rep. Robert Goodlatte (R-VA), and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), among many others. "Sometimes comedy is the best way to call attention to a serious issue, and you do not find an issue more serious than this one. These 'Lap Dog' politicians are putting the financial interests of the gun industry ahead of the safety of the American people. Americans are literally dying as a result, and it is time for all of us to say enough," said Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. "Even worse, when we look at the…
