When you think of America’s great constitutional minds, names like Madison, Jefferson, Washington, and Franklin come to mind. And, of course, Abbott.
Wait, who’s Abbott?
Last year, Texas Governor Greg Abbott revealed that he’d penned nine new amendments to the U.S. Constitution. His proposals amount to a bill of sale, effectively transferring our national government from The People to The Plutocrats.
His “tweaks” would outlaw government actions that restrain corporate abuse of workers and consumers, while also preventing future Congresses from meeting crucial public needs such as health care, voter rights, and restoration of our national infrastructure.
However, Abbott isn’t the force behind this tampering with our constitution.
