So, what have you done to restore the Republic on this extended holiday weekend? We have a suggestion – hammer your Congressman (and Senators).
26 Nov 2014 | from Breitbart.com, an article by MATTHEW BOYLE:
EXCLUSIVE -- CONGRESSIONAL RESEARCH SERVICE: CONGRESS HAS POWER TO BLOCK FUNDING FOR OBAMA'S EXECUTIVE AMNESTY
The Congressional Research Service (CRS) has concluded that House Appropriations Committee chairman Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY) is wrong, and that Congress can in fact block funding for President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty order.
“In light of Congress’s constitutional power over the purse, the Supreme Court has recognized that ‘Congress may always circumscribe agency discretion to allocate resources by putting restrictions in the operative statutes,’” the CRS, a legislative authority on Capitol Hill, wrote in a report sent to incoming Senate Budget Committee chairman Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL). “Where Congress has done so, ‘an agency is not free simply to disregard statutory responsibilities.’ Therefore, if a statute were enacted which prohibited appropriated funds from being used for some specified purposes, then the relevant funds would be unavailable to be obligated or expended for those purposes.”
The website NumbersUSA.com offers a convenient and simple way to contact your elected representatives with a pre-written message that you may customize with your own comments. Here is the one I sent today; an example of what you can also do.
Representative Patrick Murphy
U.S. House of Representatives, 1517 Longworth House Office Building
Washington, FL 20515
Dear Representative Murphy:
A new poll of actual voters from Tuesday's mid-term elections has found that 74% of voters oppose Pres. Obama bypassing Congress and taking executive action on immigration. Further, 80% of actual voters think new jobs should go to Americans and legal immigrants already in the country. I urge you to tell the White House not to take executive action on immigration since three-quarters of voters oppose the President acting alone.
American voters have overwhelmingly shown that they are against efforts, both by President Obama and by Congress, to amnesty illegal aliens. The results of the poll show that voters do not want the president to go it alone on this issue and losses by pro-amnesty candidates show that Americans do not want Congress to reward illegal aliens with work permits and legal status.
President Obama, however, has decided to ignore the message sent by the American people and put illegal aliens ahead jobless Americans and legal immigrants already in the United States, even though 80% of Americans oppose this action.
I hope you will urge President Obama to back down from his executive action cliff. The American people have spoken and they want him to put Americans, and the rule of law, first.
Phone me if you would like to talk about this,
P.S. I am not going to let this go. Many people feel the same way. We will not rest until this threat is reversed.
