News broke last week that the Social Security Administration is seeking to expedite its backlog of disability claims by allowing employees of the agency to adjudicate cases.

There’s just one problem.

Those cases are supposed to be decided by independent judges—not bureaucrats on the SSA payroll.

“I would say the system is rigged,” one Senator noted in a Congressional hearing.

It’s time we faced the truth: our federal agencies are broken. We need a way to change how the bureaucratic machine relates to the American people.

An Article V Convention of States can propose constitutional amendments that return the balance of power between the feds and We the People.

You can learn all about the Article V movement in our new introductory webinar series. It will only take 30 minutes of your time, but you’ll learn everything you need to know.

I look forward to seeing you there!
