A picture really is worth a thousand words, and a Facebook post by my own Congressional Representative, Candice Miller (R-MI), shows her chumming with Michigan Democrats who have worked for years undermining Constitutional freedoms. Speaks volumes. Grinning from ear to ear are all the usual suspects in the effort to impose socialized healthcare on America – including Rep. John Dingell. Candice Miller did Dingell’s, and Obama’s, bidding by funding socialized healthcare for another year. No wonder they’re all so happy together. They’re bosom buddies in the effort to steal your healthcare choices and place them squarely in the hands of Obama’s bureaucratic nightmare machine.
In November, Americans clearly demonstrated their contempt for Obamacare and Amnesty by executive decree by supporting what Americans hoped would be the opposition party to Obama. Americans overwhelmingly oppose Obamacare and Amnesty by decree, and elected a Republican majority to the Senate and bolstered that majority in the House to oppose this nonsense. What did Speaker of the House, John Boehner and the Republicans do with that newly elected Congress? As Sarah Palin put it, Boehner and the Republican majority in the House just flipped us the bird! The $1.1 trillion CRomnibus bill funds Obamacare for another year, but it also cements into place Obama’s Amnesty pronouncement.
Insanity right? And voting against the CRomnibus should have been a no-brainer for any member of Congress who actually takes seriously his or her oath to uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution from all enemies both foreign and domestic; especially in light of the November election. This vote slaps Americans squarely across the face.
All that any member of Congress had to do to stop Obama dead in his tracks politically would have been to vote a short term continuing resolution of the budget just long enough to prevent a shut down of government until the newly elected Congress could be seated in January 2015. Then that Congress could negotiate – item by item – funding for any given program that is part of Obama’s agenda to fundamentally transform America.
Candice Miller and every other Republican who sold us out on the CRomnibus, therefore, just stole from out of the hands of the American People the ability to leverage this president’s radical agenda for another whole year!
Think about that! If Rep. Candice Miller had voted against Boehner’s CRomnibus bill, and instead had supported a short term continuing resolution to fund the government until the next Congress is seated in January, then every aspect of Obama’s agenda to radically transform America could have been brought to the bargaining table, and the American People could have taken Obama to the woodshed, one program at a time.
That has been postponed for another year.
Candice Miller failed her constituents. Candice Miller failed the American People and the Constitution – the source of her voting authority – which gave her the power to oppose this president’s unconstitutional actions by relinquishing that authority by funding the president’s agenda for another entire year.Follow @LifeLiberty1776
