Dear John Jacob,
These are the times that make men vomit. Have you seen the latest Gunowners Of America Alert?
Mr. Milquetoast himself, Harry Reid, may pass some version of ObamaNationCare because NOT ONE Senate Republican has the brass to stand up and just say NO…..not one more lie….not one more penny… not one more day…. not one more usurpation.
What possible power does this pantywaist Reid have over Senators like North Carolina’s Richard Burr to silence him into submission? The State that gave the nation Jesse Helms (Senator NO), now has Richard Burr (Senator Go-Along-To-Get-Along).
In case you did not read the Alert here is the money quote:
Republican Leader Mitch McConnell has adopted a losing strategy that will, unfortunately, help speed up the passage of Harry Reid’s anti-gun health care bill.
The Senate can do little without every senator agreeing to do it — or at least not objecting to its being done. Hence, you hear about “unanimous consent requests.” This means that every senator agrees to considering a particular amendment or, at least, to voting on it at a particular time.
The thing about these requests is this: They almost always make it easier for the bill to pass.
Hence, we are at the point where WE SHOULD STOP ALL UNANIMOUS CONSENT AGREEMENTS TO FURTHER REID’S HEALTH CARE FREIGHT TRAIN. And a single senator can do this by simply saying: “I object.”
But instead, Mitch McConnell has already started allowing amendments to be offered which will let the Senate Democrats “clean up” the bill … just enough to get it passed by the Senate.
We need to stop this sort of deal making. We need to stop these requests which grease the skids for Harry Reid’s freight train.
And, in particular, we don’t want to clean up this diabolical monstrosity. We want to kill it.
So our message? Kill the bill. Kill the bill. Kill the bill.
AND NO MORE UNANIOMOUS CONSENT AGREEMENTS TO FACILITATE THAT BILL’S PASSAGE.
Previously I wrote to you about my attempt to find an actual upfront, out-of-the-closet gunowner in Senator Burr’s Office. (CLICK LINK HERE) Apparently staff insouciance extends past the Right To Keep And Bear Arms and flows directly into the all pervasive culture of tyranny that flourishes in contemporary Washington.
At the end of the day Richard Burr is just another Republican In Name Only. He is just a “beard” to give Bolshevik Liberal Ideas the appearance of normalcy.
If Burr can not throw speed bumps into path of ObamaNationCare even with symbolic objections why bother to keep him in office at all? Let a Democrat have the seat so they can take ALL the responsibility for their cockamamie schemes.
