Republicans Responsible for Government Shutdown
104 Republicans Who Are In Congress Today Voted To Increase The Debt Ceiling Under Bush Without Hostage Threats
Article from thinkprogress.org
House Republican Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), and 84 other House Republicans who are still serving in Congress today voted for the bill (10 of whom are now Senators).
In the Senate, 50 Republicans — 17 of whom are still serving today — voted for the identical bill. Among them was Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), who explained the bill was “necessary to preserve the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government.” He observed that “without an increase in the debt limit, our Government will face a choice between breaking the law by exceeding the statutory debt limit, or breaking faith with the public by defaulting on our debt. Neither choice is acceptable.”
In total, Congressional Republican leaders backed five separate debt ceiling increases during Bush’s eight years in the White House. Read complete article here…
Republican Congressman Peter King Admits Republican are responsible for shutting down the Government
This video shows Republicans trying to blame President Obama for the shutdown when Republicans and John Boehner was in fact responsible
In this video, a Republican congressman says “we have to get something out of this and I don’t even know what it is”. Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul makes some off-the-cuff comments not knowing they were being recorded
This video exposes how Republicans conspired to “just say no” to everything President Obama proposed. It also exposes how 80 Republicans signed an agreement urging Speaker John Boehner to defund the Affordable Care Act and to shut down the government if necessary.
This TOTALLY exposes Republicans conspiracy against the American people Before taking office, each member of Congress must take a oath to “faithfully discharge the duties of the office.”
The oath taken by both houses of Congress reads:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God” One of the most important part of congressperson’s duties is to pay the government bills. It therefore seems that Republicans who has refused to fund the Affordable Care Act are in violation of their oath of office and should be removed and prosecuted.
