Senator Gregg goes 'On The Record' with Fox News' Greta Van Susteren

Sen. Gregg says this is a "fiscal calamity." I say it's suicide.

: Some folks tell me that repealing the 17th Amendment won't change anything in Washington; basically politicians are politicians. But can we afford the mounting trillions of dollars on our deficit? Can three generations forward afford this tremendous debt? Can we sit back and think that voting the politician out or switching parties is going to save our country? I don't think so.

The founders knew we needed checks and balances in our form of government and that balance was violated when the 17th Amendment was passed and then the elimination of the 9th and 10th Amendments began. By repealing the 17th Amendment we are not turning the hands of the clock back to the 19th century, that's a foolish hyperbole: but what we are doing is restoring the framework of our government that ensured the recklessness described by Gregg stops.

If these 100 continue to act irresponsibly (a mild term) and we haven't stopped them yet, what makes you think we can...ever? The time is now to repeal the 17th Amendment and restore limited government to our nation. We must repeal the 17th Amendment before it is too late...and that's not an exaggeration folks.
