Note: You may remember the Republicans riffing on the “all we want is an Up or Down vote!” when Democrats were threatening filibusters over some of George W. Bush’s nominees. It’s time to let them hear those words again. Please take a few minutes to send your own message to Speaker Boehner here.
Dear Speaker Boehner,
Must I remind you that you are the Speaker of the HOUSE, not the Speaker of the Republican Party. As second in line for the presidency, I expect you to show careful stewardship of our nation.
You’ve failed. You’ve failed to uphold your oath of office. You, and the band of terrorists that control you, are now engaging in treasonous acts of sabotage against the U.S. (I remind you that you are not immune from prosecution for Treason under Article I, section 6 of the Constitution.)
I demand that you stop your collusion with the terrorists. Put a CLEAN continuing resolution up for a vote IMMEDIATELY.
All Americans want is an up or down vote on a clean resolution. Call it the “Constitutional option”, an up or down vote put before House members. This is what the Speaker of the House is obligated to do.
Up or down vote!
