|We Must Act Together Today To Stop Illegitimate Bill From Passing Senate|
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has scheduled a vote on
HR 4302, the so-called "Doc Fix" bill, for TONIGHT.A serious constitutional breach, every bit as bad as the ones that Obama
commits, took place in the House of Representatives last week. We need
your help today to prevent this bill from passing in the Senate. Please
Congress is so desperate to pass this bill, so that they can leave for their Easter vacation, that John Boehner (R-OH) and Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) "passed" it in the House without having an actual VOTE. The bill wasn't even completely written!
Republicans and Democrats alike are furious with the stunt that Pelosi,
Boehner and Reid pulled.
Representatives were still working on amendments to the Doc Fix bill on
Thursday. They still hadn't come up with a way to pay for the $180 billion
The House had agreed to "fast track" this bill, so they needed a
supermajority of 270 votes to pass it in such a hurry.
But all of a sudden one of Boehner's lieutenants, Rep. Steve Womack
(R-AR), announced a voice vote on the bill when there were only a handful
of Representatives in the House chamber.
Surprised by this move, most of the Representatives who were there --
Democrats and Republicans -- shouted "NO!"
The voice vote failed.
But Rep. Womack declared that the bill had passed and then denied the
request for a roll call vote!
This so-called spending bill was unfinished and it has no
mechanism in it to pay for the $180 BILLION that it spends.
