a. Let him know that we support Senator Ted Cruz and want our Congressman to stand with him to cut spending, de-fund Obamacare, and balance the Federal Budget. His email is at: https://lobiondo.house.gov/contact-me/email-me. His phone numbers are (202) 225-6572 (Washington, D.C.) and (609) 625-5008 and (800) 471-4450 (Mays Landing).
b. Take out your pocket Constitution and see why Texas Senator Ted Cruz is right, and why Republican Senate ?leaders? like John McCain and Mitch McConnell are wrong.
Article I, Section 7 of U.S. Constitution: ?All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives?.
Article I, Section 8 of U.S. Constitution: The Congress shall have Power to lay and collect taxes. . . to regulate commerce, establish post offices, to secure patents and copyrights for authors and inventors, to declare war, to raise and support armies, etc.?
Article I, Section 9 of U.S. Constitution: No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury but in consequence of appropriations made by law (i.e. laws approved by Congress!)
c. The House of Representatives passed a law that fully funds the government?except for Obamacare. If the Senate and President approve that law, the government keeps running?except for Obamacare. If the Senate and President choose not to pass that law, then they are the ones who shut down the government?not the Republican Congress.
d. How can Arizona Senator John McCain say the American people voted for Obamacare in 2012? Didn?t they throw out a bunch of Democrats who voted for Obamacare in 2010 and elect a Republican majority to the House of Representatives in 2010? Didn?t they elect more Republican Senators for the same reason in 2010 and 2012? And didn?t they keep a Republican majority in the House of Representatives in 2012?
e. Unplug the corporate-Republicans of Fox News and tune into Glenn Beck?s TV network. http://www.theblaze.com/.
