Emergency Declaration Debate Presents an Opportunity for Article I

Following the Senate’s passage yesterday of the joint resolution to disapprove of President Trump’s recent emergency declaration to use existing funds to construct a barrier along some portions of our southern border, it is clear that some in Congress are finally picking up an important message. Congress has to put a stop to and reverse course on its slow-but-steady ceding of its constitutional powers to the executive branch. On everything from trade and regulation to war and now the power of the purse, the executive branch and the president are much more powerful than was intended as outlined in Article I of the Constitution.

Republicans Move to Stymie Congress’ Attempt to Reclaim Article I War Powers

Within a few days of Congress returning from recess, House Republicans are once again undermining the document that conservatives promise time and time again to uphold -- the Constitution. This latest move comes despite the GOP losing control of the House just over a week ago for its leadership continually failing to uphold a number of conservative promises to the American people.

FreedomWorks’ Bill of the Month for November 2018: Resolution for the Article One Restoration Act, H.Res. 330

FreedomWorks is proud to announce that our bill of the month for November 2018 is the resolution for the Article One Restoration Act, H.Res. 330, sponsored by Rep. Warren Davidson (R-Ohio). The resolution, which is cosponsored by such freedom fighters as Reps. Gary Palmer (R-Ala.) and Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), would direct House Committees to review laws within their jurisdiction to eliminate executive branch overreach in applying these laws. This type of congressional oversight of the executive is much needed.

With Yemen Vote, Senate Republicans Overwhelmingly Deny the Constitution

Republicans’ consistent platform in elections is an adherence to the Constitution, rule of law, and fiscal responsibility. Two weeks ago, those same Republicans in the Senate allowed both of these to more than fall by the wayside. One might point initially at hearing this to the passage of the omnibus spending bill, which -- make no mistake -- did throw these principles under the bus.

Congress Should Use the REINS Act to Combat the Regulatory State

In the Broadway musical-turned-movie, 1776, John Adams ranted to the Second Continental Congress that it had stalled his proposals for independence from King George III and Great Britain. Delegates, even those who wanted a diplomatic solution to rather than war, blasted King George for running roughshod over the rights of colonists, restricting trade, and taxing them without representation in parliament.

On behalf of FreedomWorks’ activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to cosponsor the Separation of Powers Restoration Act, H.R. 76. Introduced by Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas), the Separation of Powers Restoration Act would reduce the influence of the federal bureaucrats in the regulatory state by ending the Chevron deference established by the Supreme Court.
