The results of Friday’s cloture vote has motivated conservatives, in Missouri, to turn to social media in an effort organize and remove Roy Blunt from office.
Just moments after the senate voted to end debate on the budget bill, which also gave Harry Reid the power to strip the Obamacare defund language from it, conservatives began to search for their representative’s name, on the list of senators, that voted for cloture. Conservative Missourians were not happy to see Blunt's support for cloture.
Nearly 6 months ago, the Replace Roy Blunt facebook page was created by some who had already been watching the actions of the Missouri senator, and were displeased with what they saw. And for that time, until the cloture vote, it had maintained only a little over one hundred members. In nearly twelve hours the membership more than doubled and is still growing. What’s more notable are the comments coming from the Missouri constituency.
Sean Sinclear Mcdermott-I called Mr. Blun’ts office and I was assured (placated) that Roy would stand against Obamacare and gun grab. Both were bold faced “blunt” lies. Can this Nazi muffin and put him on the welfare and Obamacare so he can feal our pain.
Cheryl Richer Arledge-When I called Roy Blunt’s Washington office, they assured me that he would be voting AGAINST cloture …. LIARS.
Blunt needs to go. The people of Missouri voted against Obamacare back in 2010. Blunt does not represent Missourians. He is only concerned with his own interests.
Chris Brant-Roy Blunt was against Obamacare before he was for it. Lol. But seriously, when I called his office his political flunky hacks tried to spin it and say Senator Blunt opposes Obamacare and has from the beginning. As if the symbolic votes did something but when a real vote comes up he backs Reid and McCain… I say recall the man. He obviously ignores the people that elected him. I might add that one office staffer I spoke to did say they had a lot of democrats calling in to thank Roy. I don’t think she was happy with the vote either since she offered the information.
Alita Wright-Roy Blunt has fallen in place with the “status quo”. He is not representing Missouri voters in Washington. He was elected to vote as his constituents would. It is time for a complete government overhaul from the White House all the way to the dog catcher.
Jason Buchanan- It’s a sad day when a majority of Missourians don’t have a representative who represents them at a national level.
Nicole Twellman-I;m confused. How can he say one thing-put his support for defunding Obamacare on his webpage and Facebook-then completely do the opposite? We want an explanation.
Jason Davidson-As Thomas Jeffers, (fyi the name sake of Missouri’s Capitol, by the way) once said, “In matters of style, swim with the current; In matters of principal, stand like a rock.” Missouri needs a rock…. Instead we have Roy Blunt who has swam so much by now, he’s growing gills and fins.
Morgan Warren-I posted this to Blunt’s page… “NSA spying, IRS harassment, Homeland Security arming itself against American citizens, Refusing assistance to Americans being butchered in Behghazi, providing assistance and weapons to Al-Qaeda linked groups in Syria, and providing support and weapons to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt…Yep… SHUT THE CORRUPT MESS DOWN. In fact, you people of both parties need a few days time out to sit in a corner and think about what you have done wrong. You are our employees, you should be representing us, not trying to rule us. Before you start thinking you are the expert on these issues, remember this. Pelosi: “We have to pass the bill so you can see what’s in it.” You people don’t even know what’s in the bills you are passing into law or care about the affect it will have on the rest of us because you people seem to think you are above the laws of this country.
As the senate recessed on Friday, Senator Blunt was scheduled to speak at CPAC-St. Louis on Saturday, but did not appear.
