The Oath of Office
“I, Jo Rae Perkins, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic;
That I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same;
That I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and
That I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter.
So help me God.” Jo Rae Perkins
The Oath of Office taken by every Member of Congress.
It must be taken seriously with a solid understanding of what the words mean.
It is with much reverence I look forward to taking the Oath of office with the other Members of the 116th Congress, on January 3, 2019.
Prior to voting, my team and I will read every bill to ensure each bill passes my 3-part litmus test:
- Is the bill congruent with the original intent of the U.S. Constitution, Amendments and Bill of Rights?
- Is the bill free from pork barrel spending and/or other non-related issues? Is it a single issue bill?
- Is the bill aligned with Constitutional conservative fiscal and social values?
If any part of any bill fails any item in my 3-part litmus test, I will vote No.
