Give Us The Facts
Where would our country be if Republicans did not control the House of Representatives?
If needed legislation restricting military and law enforcement style weapons is sent to the House, surveys show it will fail. As has become its practice, congressional Republicans will all vote the same way, and they’ll kill a necessary bill.
I believe it is time for full disclosure. I want to see the names of all congressmen who have accepted money from the NRA to support their election or re-election campaigns. I can give you the names of fathers, mothers, brothers, and sisters who have supported candidates in favor of gun control legislation. There are none. The money they have is needed for their families, not for political action. But they should have the needed votes to protect the security and safety of their families.
We are a nation ruled by money. If you have it, you can get anything you want. If you have little money, your life is often a struggle our representatives don’t want to hear about. Lobbies have lots of money, and they use it to gain control of the government and guarantee special interest groups make billions of dollars at the expense of the working class. Only special interest groups, including the NRA, the AMA, major corporations, and the banking industry can afford to bribe our elected officials. Not only can we working people not afford the same action, we’re too honest to do it.
Newt Gingrich said that President Obama is “bullying congress”. If he is, and is doing it in a fashion that positively affects me, my family and friends, then I say, go for it.
