Now it looks like tax reform might be the GOP’s next broken commitment.

In November’s election, the voters spoke overwhelming in favor of the GOP agenda — less government, lower taxes, more freedom. Now it isn’t clear whether Republicans ever intended to follow through on their major campaign promises, and the American people have taken note.Millions have joined the Convention of States Project to take matters into their own hands. The GOP may not believe in their agenda, but the American people are fighting in states around the country for freedom and limited government.
The Convention of States Project is a national grassroots movement dedicated to calling an Article V Amendments Convention. At such a convention, states can propose constitutional amendments that actually address tax reform, actuallyshrink government, and actually promote freedom and self-governance for average Americans.
Ten states have signed on so far, and more are right behind.
