Hey Congress!: No Results, No Vacation
« on: June 22, 2017, 01:48:55 PM »

Fellow Conservative:

This is Congressman Jim Jordan, co-founder of the House Freedom Caucus and chairman of the House Freedom Fund.

The House Freedom Caucus recently called for the cancellation of the traditional month-long congressional recess this August and urged that Congress stay in session to accomplish the priorities of the American people. Our position is simple: No results, no vacation.

Do you agree?

If so, please sign the national petition urging Congress to stay in session this August to finish the people's work.

Click here to add your name to the effort to block the congressional vacation when there is work to be done.

We've made promises to repeal Obamacare, reform the tax code, defund Planned Parenthood, and to secure our borders.

Now it's time to get them done.

We can't drag our feet on conservative reforms and then pretend we don't have time to do them. If Congress doesn't produce results, then it should not go on a month-long recess. It's that simple.

I signed the petition, but only about 600 had by that time. I hope I was just early.

I just signed ... says 1099. I checked after signing and it didn't move. Might be railed there.

It's pathetic when we have to petition the congress to actually work.

Seems fruitless, considering they campaigned on promising to kill Commiecare, and now we have to petition them to keep their word?
I say, either recall the bastards or....replace them come midterm, Hell, they lied after all!

Ya know, I've lived by a code, that my word was my bond and to break my word was akin to stealing.
I don't steal either.

We have to look at it from a positive standpoint. It is progress as it reflects the folks are paying more attention now. Most of Washington hates this fact. Every day that goes by I am more and more grateful for the "Freedom Caucus". Can you imagine what GOPe is saying about them in private? These few conservatives are showing real courage.
