A Review of the Continuing Resolution Vote

During this week, LLPH has had time to review votes on several key bills and update our website while Congress has been out of session. We want to keep LLPHers updated on issues of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

One of the key issues that came before Congress was the Continuing Resolution on March 21, 2013. Sadly, only 14 Republican representatives voted against the CR. Many Democrats voted against it too, but mainly because it did not spend enough and the spending was only at sequester levels (we wanted the spending to be even lower).

I put the years they’ve served in congress to make a point. Most of those opposing this continuing resolution that funds Obamacare are freshmen and sophomores who joined congress in 2010 and 2012. In 2014, it must be the goal of people concerned about the massive debt and regulations to install a new group of leaders.

This continuing resolution was wrong and in the future, LLPH will score votes like this one double than the standard vote. Let’s hope that more representatives remember that they promised to repeal Obamacare (and fight to defund it)…not “fix” it as the leadership wishes to do.
