KOMMONSENTSJANE – ILLEGAL AMNESTY VOTE

I don’t want to beat a dead horse – but I am very disappointed in the Republicans who voted to fund a bill that is illegal – why.  Those people who voted  “YEA” need to explain to the American people why they voted to fund Obama’s executive amnesty.  They promised they would hold their ground and broke their promise!

Fully Fund Obama’s Executive Amnesty

February 27, 2015

The vote was on whether to pass the FY 2015 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) funding bill, which re-instated funding for Obama’s executive amnesty. This was the last opportunity for Republican’s to stop funding for full implementation of President Obama’s illegal executive amnesty for the remainder of the year.

The conservative vote was NAY.

Republicans in Congress rebuke their leaders and vote against funding for President Obama’s executive amnesty.

Republican leaders in Washington have now succeeded in passing funding for President Obama’s illegal executive amnesty program.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) joined Senator Harry Reid (D-NV), Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and every Democrat in Congress to pass this sellout.

These Republican leaders did this after they promised in December to use the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) bill to defund the president’s action.
The battle for the future of this country is no longer a fight between Republicans and Democrats; it’s a fight between the political establishment in DC and all of us.

While the passage of this bill is certainly one of the biggest betrayals we have seen in recent years, there is some good news to report.  A majority of Republicans in the House and Senate voted against their leaders and opposed funding for executive amnesty.
In the House, 167 Republicans (68%) opposed it, and in the
Senate, 31 Republicans (57%) opposed it. It’s a reversal from December when a majority of Republicans supported the cr-omnibus spending bill that also funded amnesty.
This is a big shift and it would not have happened without all of the petitions signed and calls made by people like you across the country.

It’s a clear rebuke of the decision by Senator McConnell and Speaker Boehner to surrender the power of the purse.

Senate Republicans need to hear from us on this issue. They think the debate is over and they expect Americans to forget and move on.

The senators who voted to fund the president’s amnesty need to know we’re disappointed. They need to know that there are consequences for betraying their principles. Likewise, those who voted against it need to know we’re grateful.
And every Republican needs to know that we’re disappointed in Senator McConnell’s failure to stand up to the president.  Here’s a printable list of senators with phone numbers.

It’s time to build a new Republican Party. It’s time to support principled conservatives in key races across the country, and it’s time to support conservative primary challengers against liberal incumbents who have lost their way.

This is what SCF was created to do and it’s needed now more than ever.

Thank you for standing strong for freedom and thank you for being part of SCF’s effort to change Washington. Please don’t get discouraged. We’re making progress and this country is worth fighting for.

Sincerely,
Ken Cuccinelli II
