Congressman Brad Ellsworth Responds to Editor on H.Con.Res. 274


Thank you for contacting me with your views on H.Con.Res. 274. I appreciate your comments, and I welcome this opportunity to share my thoughts.

Faith has long been a part of our national history, starting with the Declaration of Independence that recognized our “Creator” as the source of individuals’ rights. Our national motto, “In God We Trust” is inscribed above the Speaker’s rostrum in the House of Representatives, and is a daily reminder of the vital role faith has played on our nation’s leaders and citizens.

On June 15, 2010, Congressman Randy Forbes of Virginia introduced H.Con.Res. 274, reaffirming “In God We Trust” as our official national motto and encouraging the public display of the national motto in all public buildings, public schools, and other government institutions. Shortly after its introduction, H.Con.Res was referred to House Judiciary Committee. Although I am not a member of this committee, please be assured I look forward to voting in favor of this bill when it comes to the House floor for consideration.

Thanks again for taking the time to share your views with me. If you would like to learn more about my positions on issues important to you or receive regular updates on developments in Congress, please visit my Online Office at and sign up for my e-Newsletter.

  1. Wow he is a hoot. This guy has it all figured out now. I’m glad he will be gone in November.

    • I’m glad he is favor of this bill maybe it will in some small measure help repair the damage he has done to this country.

  2. We have been “trusting in god” and the goodness of man for too long……Look at the mess this “trust” has provided us.
    VOTE ALL INCUMBENTS OUT! two terms only!
