House Republicans Support the US Constitution and “We the People” New Press Release

Press Release
House GOP Leaders to Force Vote Tomorrow on Measure Blocking “Slaughter Solution”
GOP Leader: “The ‘Slaughter Solution’ has sparked widespread outrage because it’s designed to protect Washington politicians when it’s American taxpayers we should be looking out for.”

Washington, Mar 17 -House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) announced that House Republicans will force a vote tomorrow on a resolution requiring a clean, up-or-down vote on the Senate-passed health care bill.  If adopted by the House, the resolution would prohibit Speaker Pelosi and Democratic Leaders from implementing the “Slaughter Solution,” the controversial scheme by which the Senate health care bill would be deemed as passed by the House without an actual up-or-down vote.
“The ‘Slaughter Solution’ has sparked widespread outrage because it’s designed to protect Washington politicians when it’s American taxpayers we should be looking out for,” Boehner said. “Speaker Pelosi and Democratic Leaders, who promised to lead the ‘most open’ Congress in history, thought they could pull a fast one on the American people, but they were wrong.  This vote will give Democrats an opportunity to demonstrate whether they share Republicans’ commitment to ensuring the American people get what they deserve: a clean, up-or-down vote on the Senate health care bill.  The stakes are too high, and this bill is too controversial, for anything less than total accountability.”

House Republicans will offer the text of the resolution as the “PQ” (“previous question”) for the suspension authority rule that is expected to be considered on the floor Thursday.  The text of the resolution, introduced by Rep. Parker Griffith (R-AL) – a former Democrat who switched to the GOP in December out of disgust with Washington Democrats’ government takeover of health care –  is available here.

Parker Griffith, Patriot, Stands Up and Speaks the Truth

Parker Griffith - R - AL 5th District
I wrote a bit upon Parker Griffith on the day he announced that he was crossing over from the Democratic Party to the Republican Party:  The Patriots Are Beginning to Stand Up – Enter Parker Griffith. It’s really great to see Rep. Parker Griffith listed as (Republican-AL 5th District) on his Congress.org page.

He also appears to be talking the talk and walking the walk of a concerned citizen, caregiver, and conservative lawmaker. Parker Griffith is working for America so that Health Care does not become Lottery Care. As a physician he diagnoses the illness of our government today in the article:  Ex-Democrat: Party Suffers ‘Arrested Development’. It’s uplifting to know that doctors are as wary as patients with the craziness of the Pelosi/Obama/Reid health care plan. America Patriots are on the rise! Alabama you have got to be proud!

*** Is it a coincidence that Pelosi, Obama, & Reid’s initials create POR? Add a K you get PORK, another O you get POOR? hmm?

The Patriots Are Beginning to Stand Up – Enter Parker Griffith

Parker Griffith - R - AL 5th District
Moments ago at 2:00 EST, the United States of America accepted the latest great American Patriot.  Welcome – Parker Griffith. who has left the slime of the Democratic Party in the U.S. House of Representatives to cross party lines and declare alignment with the Republican Party values. There were no kind words of farewell to the Democrats.

There is opportunity for change growing daily. Congratulations Rep. Griffith, your country salutes you! I know Alabama is darn proud of you!
