The responsibility of a United States Congressional Representative is to serve the people of their state, and the people of the United States, according to the timeless principles contained in the Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution. The Constitution, being the supreme law of the land, is the foundation for all law and policy within our government and society. A Congressional Representative’s goal should always be to determine the original meaning of our founding documents, as intended by the framers, and legislate accordingly. The Tenth Amendment clearly reserves all powers, not specifically delegated to the federal government, to the states and the people. Government in general, and the federal government in particular, have overstepped their Constitutional bounds. As a citizen of New Jersey, and as a U.S. Congressional Representative, Anna will stand up to protect our state from the overreaching arm of the Federal Government.
Anna supports and would vote for the Enumerated Powers Act, a proposed law that would require all bills introduced in the U.S. Congress to include a statement setting forth the specific Constitutional authority under which the law is being enacted.
“Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government.” -- James Madison--
