Your US House Member And The Farm Bill Vote

As expected, the Farm Bill was re-married with the Welfare/Food Stamp Bill and was an assault on the taxpayers, freedom, and the free market in general.

Sadly, the conservative position as well un-represented by the Missouri Republican Coalition with all Republicans voting for the bill:

It’s disappointing, as I look at the current scorecard for Missouri (a bit differently than most), I see that:

  • Billy Long votes against conservative positions 18% of the time
  • Jason Smith 24% of the time
  • Ann Wagner 31% of the time
  • Vicky Hartzler 32% of the time
  • Sam Graves 33% of the time
  • Blaine Luetkemeyer 37% of the time
  • Senator Blunt votes against conservative positions 43% (almost half) of the time

Notice how often the Missouri Democrats vote with the other side of the aisle – lock – stock – barrel:

  • William Lacy Clay votes against liberal positions 16% of the time
  • Emanuel Cleaver 10% of the time
  • Clair McCaskill 6% of the time

Some middle-of-the-roader Clair is… …but the point to note is that when our “conservative” representatives go across the aisle… …this country continues to move to the left… …toward tyranny.

Missouri Republican Representatives Sign-On To Raise Your Taxes

From Americans for Prosperity

A group of 100 U.S. Representatives sent a letter to the so-called Super Committee urging the handpicked group of twelve legislators to consider “all options for mandatory and discretionary spending and revenues” in order to reach the committee’s goal of $1.2 trillion in deficit reduction over the next ten years. In Washington speak, this is code for raising taxes.

Among this list is 40 Republicans whose capitulation encouraging the committee to raise taxes is troubling. We shouldn’t be surprised to see 60 Democrats seizing on the opportunity to drive a wedge between conservatives intent on restoring economic growth by keeping taxes low and Republican lawmakers who are starting to throw in the towel on keeping pressure on Democrats to cut spending.

The letter includes the sentence:

To succeed, all options for mandatory and discretionary spending and revenues must be on the table

In Washington-speak, this means tax increases, and your local House Republican signed the letter.

When you fought against the debt-ceiling increase earlier this year, you knew Tax Increases would be their solution.  And, now you see the fruit of Congress’ Super Committee will indeed include Tax Increases.  Spending will continue to rise at an astronomical rate, the debt will continue to increase, and our children and grandchildren will be further enslaved to the spineless representatives of our current generation.  When will you make them stop?

Contact your Congressman and tell them NOT ONE DIME OF TAX INCREASES UNTIL  YOU BALANCE THE BUDGET. PERIOD!!  A lack of taxation is not the cause of this problem.  IT’S THE SPENDING! STUPID!!

If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.
