Sadly, we can't find a single state Rep. or Senator who voted against SB 8. Please help us push Gov. Abbott to VETO SB 8 and protect Texans from federal government overreach. We'd not trade our freedom for all the money in the world and neither should our government. Please read the detailed explanation of SB 8 from our friend, JoAnn Fleming, Grassroots America - We the People for a great understanding of why we believe that
Governor Abbott must VETO this bill.
A Transfer of Texas Sovereignty and Your Liberty to the Federal Government may well be underway. The Pathway? The Evil Tentacles of Federal Funds
Governor Abbott can stop this. He has the power. Will he?
Big Gov’t Fact: Federal funds always have tentacles. Nothing is free.
Contracts that distribute various federal Coronavirus funds from Joe Biden’s US Department of Treasury now require recipients to comply with federal executive orders as terms for compliance.
On October 8, 2021, a White House letter from President Biden, which accompanied American Rescue Plan funds, expressed his intentions for these funds. "On March 11, 2021, I signed into law the American Rescue Plan, a law that will help vaccinate America,” and continues stating, "We are on the path to vaccinating the nation." Read full letter by clicking here.
At the state and local level, will the inclusion of executive orders for terms of compliance found in various Coronavirus fund distribution programs now be a means to transfer control from state and local governments to the federal government by consent of contract?
On October 15, 2021, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton warned all state agencies of federal contract language causing conflicts between state and federal laws:
"President Biden recently issued a federal executive order directing federal departments and agencies to begin including a clause in federal “contract and contract-like instruments” specifying that contractors must comply with “workplace safety protocols” that would apply to “all covered contractor employees, including contractor or subcontractor employees. These protocols will now include a requirement that covered employees receive a COVID-19 vaccination.” Read the full advisory by clicking here.
Activists & Conservative Local Gov’t Officials Fight Federal Tentacles by Rejecting the Money!
This is what we want Abbott to do– veto the $16.3 billion SB 8 bill to save Texans from the control of federal executive orders!
First, tell Gov. Abbott to immediatelyVeto SB 8 and investigate ALL appropriated and dispersed federal COVID-19 funds to determine the potential for forced compliance of state and local government agencies, assets, and services to federal executive orders, which run counter to Texas law and violate Texans’ individual liberty (including conscientious objection and informed consent).
Second, tell Gov. Abbott to end all his COVID-Related State of Emergency Orders that only continue Biden’s escalating federal overreach!
