It’s a lot like any business or restaurant you walk into. If they acknowledge you, smile and are there to serve, you know it right away. If not, well you can expect poor service and lousy customer satisfaction and all at too high a cost. This morning when I called Senator John McCain’s office I actually got the voicemail for his voicemail! I kid you not. Bottom line, many of these guys, the RINOs (John McCain, Jeff Flake, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner) don’t want to talk to you or even hear from you. They’ve made up their mind and made their deals behind the scenes.
Especially don’t call them out for having no spine!
Senators Ted Cruz & Mike Lee are absolutely correct. Pass the Continuing Resolution to fund the federal government in every aspect except ANY funding for Obamacare. Let the Democrats & Obama be responsible for shutting down the government. We’ll survive. Let’s face it that’s what happens every weekend and holidays. Remember sequester?
Repeal vs Defund
If passing a bill to repeal Obamacare in the House is such an achievement, why do it 37 times?? I’ll tell you why, because it’s not an achievement. The Senate will never pass it, so it’s a waste of time! Defunding it likely the last chance, but the Republicans need to stand up for something and get a backbone! Otherwise, why vote for them in 2014 or 2016?
Sorry folks, this just isn’t the way it was meant to me. This is not representation! They’ve made up their minds, made their deals and have no use for us lowly little constituents -at least until reelection time, then they’re all smiles -with their hand out. It makes me sick!
Support Ted Cruz & Mike Lee. Use this link to call your Senators & House members, tell them to defund Obamacare! The Senate version is called the Defund Obamacare Act of 2013 and Representative Tom Graves of Georgia has introduced a companion bill in the House to accomplish the same thing.
BTW, one of my Senators (Schatz’ staff) suggested I write a letter to get an official response. My other Senator (Hirono’s staff) said I’d get a return email responding to my questions. Representatives Hanabusa and Gabbard’s staff said neither would be voting to repeal Obamacare despite the fact that Obama (unilaterally & unconstitutionally) gave corporations a waiver to Obamacare, but failed to give the same consideration to hard working American individuals.
