ONE Man - One Vote....CAST!!!!!The secret is to ALLOW AN ACTUAL VOTE!!!! You know, one where every elected person gets to represent his/her district by casting the ballot......
But....But....But....Nancy Pelosi and company DO NOT WANT A VOTE! If they, you know, A-C-T-U-A-L-L-Y cast a ballot...then YOU The Voters get to know what YOUR representative did to represent you and your opinions! Can't have that kind of accountability.....NO WAY!
John Boehner sends Pelosi a missive:
" March 19, 2010
The Honorable Nancy Pelosi
Office of the Speaker
Washington, DC 20515
Dear Speaker Pelosi:
It appears the House of Representatives will proceed with plans to vote this weekend on President Obama’s health care legislation, despite the well-documented objections of the American people to both the contents of the bill and the manner in which the Democratic leadership hopes to pass it.
This weekend’s votes will be among the most consequential votes we will ever cast as Members of Congress. As such, it is my belief that every Member should stand before the American people and announce his or her vote as the final decision is made.
With this in mind, I request that you use your discretion under the Rules of the House of Representatives, Clause 2 and 3 of House Rule XX, to conduct the record vote by call of the roll for both adoption of the Senate health care bill (i.e. the Senate Amendment to H.R. 3590, as passed on Christmas Eve this past year) and for the rule making that bill in order.
Thank you for your consideration of this request.
Amen, let this message be sent to EVERY voter in the country...and then let EACH representative explain why they DO NOT NEED to cast an individual vote....
The Voters are Listening/Watching/Judging/Preparing.....for 2010 FALL ELECTIONS! Boy O Boy are they preparing.
