Last week, Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) dropped the biggest legislative bomb in the entire history of the United States.
You see, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) had called Speaker Boehner and asked him to pass HR 4302 - the so-called “Doc Fix” bill.
Boehner said yes and immediately passed the bill through the House of Representatives without letting Members of Congress vote on it.
In fact, House Representatives were still writing portions of this bill. It was not even finished yet and there was no mechanism in the bill to pay for it. Read more about how Boehner deliberately ignored the constitution by passing the unfinished Doc-Fix bill here.
As Congress was fast tracking the bill, it needed a 270-vote supermajority to pass. Instead, Boehner allowed a voice vote to take place with only four Representatives on the House floor.
The bill actually failed in the voice vote of the four present members, as the only votes heard were all “nayes”; however, Boehner's team declared the bill to have passed.
This is no different from Obama acting like a dictator with his pen, passing illegitimate "laws" through Executive Orders. If Americans allow Boehner to do this with a Medicare bill, he can do it with any piece of liberal legislation.
Boehner does not support the values of the Americans who gave Republicans the House majority in the 2010 elections. Boehner does not even follow the latest Republican Party Platform, which was drafted in part by Mitt Romney's leadership team in 2012.
If Mitt Romney's policies are "too conservative" for John Boehner, what must he think of conservatives who think that Congress should follow the Constitution?
Americans already know what Boehner thinks. He despises Americans and many of the things that Boehner has said publicly about conservative Christians are too foul-mouthed to print here.
With this latest constitutional breach, Boehner has proven that he is unfit to lead the House Republicans. It is not enough to ask John Boehner to lose his position as Speaker of the House. If he is going to behave like Obama and throw the Constitution aside to “pass” a bill then Boehner should not be in Congress at all. Find out how you can help with the impeachment of John Boehner here.
John Boehner is the sole reason why amnesty for illegal aliens is still being talked about. Boehner has kept this issue alive for Obama and the Democrats.
Boehner has allowed the debt ceiling to be increased for Obama every time that the issue comes up. He has also helped Obama to increase taxes on the middle class.
Boehner has declared Obamacare to be "the law of the land" and then stood by while Obama rewrote the law multiple times on his own.
Boehner has held up the Fast & Furious, Benghazi and IRS scandal investigations.
John Boehner is not a man of truth. He is sleeping with the enemy and working against the Conservative Republicans that he is supposed to represent every time we try to stop Obama's far-left agenda.
Americans are already in enough danger from Obama with his pen and his reckless Executive Orders.
Americans cannot allow John Boehner to act the same way with bills that are proposed in Congress (and not even fully written).
America can either be a nation that honors the rule of law or descend into a banana republic with the likes of Boehner and Obama.
If you believe that US Representatives should follow the constitution and fairly pass bills, you can help achieve this by convincing Congress to impeach John Boehner. Please also share this link with everyone you know so that they can help too.
