I have had it. I’m done with my own Congressman that I have always held in high regard, with the utmost respect. Congressman Paul Ryan really let me down when he voted to pass the Cromnibus. And today, he voted for Boehner for Speaker of the House again. Thank God my husband won’t let me support financially any party or candidate!
Let’s just recap the most recent lies that Speaker Boehner has told us:
“I’m suing the President…”
“I will fight him tooth and nail…”
“When you play with matches, you’re going to get burned.”
And he did exactly what the Senate did when they passed the Affordable Care Act. Passed a 1700 page budget to the Senate, filled with pork, and it funded POTUS through the year. How does he differ from Pelosi or Reid? He doesn’t.
I called Capital Hill all afternoon long yesterday. I got one ring, then nothing. The phone lines were jammed! People from all over the U.S. were trying to get ahold of their Representatives to request them not to put Boehner back in as Speaker. When I finally got in and spoke to someone, she kindly put me through to my Congressman’s office. Naturally, the office was closed so I was directed to leave a voice mail. If you have ever tried to leave a voice mail at Capital Hill, it is quite a trick or I’m an imbecile. I finally managed to leave a message. But while I was waiting, I sent an email to him about the same thing.
I will be calling again today in hopes of actually speaking with him and letting him know that he has lost my vote and my loyalty since he never valued it in the first place.
I recommend that if you are unhappy about how things went today, you call Capital Hill as well. 202-224-3121 ask the operator to connect you to your Congressman.
