Whenever a new bill is introduced in Congress or is being proposed by one party or the other, every voter should be armed with some key questions for the supporters of the proposal. Karl Uppiano, writing for American Thinker has some suggestions for the Tea Party movement.
If you are a part of the Tea Party movement, you might sometimes wonder, “What can I do?” Well, you can memorize, or print out and carry in your pocket, these three questions:
1. Which article of the Constitution gives government the authority to do this?
2. How does this help reduce the deficit and balance the budget?
3. Why does this have to be mandatory and not voluntary?
These are three pretty good questions that will force supporters of proposed legislation to defend their position. However, I think there are at least two other questions that should be asked:
4. How dosed this proposal help to create jobs and/or promote economic growth?
5. Why does this need to be done at the federal level and not at the state level?
What other important question would you want to ask?
