Action Alert: Call the White House

Dear Reader,

Tomorrow the President will decide whether or not the Constitution is still a legally binding document.


After Congress passed the omnibus spending bill, members of Congress inserted into the conference report that accompanied the legislation more than 9,000 earmarks worth several billion dollars.

The earmarks were not voted on by the House and Senate.  Yet, Congress maintains that the earmarks are legally binding.  This violates the process for passing legislation in the Constitution of the United States.

Tomorrow, the President will decide whether he should issue an executive order telling government agencies to ignore the earmarks.  If the President issues the executive order, he will be enforcing the legislative process the Constitution says we must follow.  If the President does not issue the executive order, he will be rewarding Congress for ignoring the Constitution.

Please call the President at 202-456-1111 and tell him to issue the Executive Order on Earmarks.

You can also email

Also, please call Senator Mitch McConnell who is pushing the President to ignore the Constitution.  Tell Mitch McConnell to stop ignoring the Constitution and support the executive order.   You can call him at 202-224-2541.

All the best,

Erick Erickson
